Research and Development

Bethan Clintonbethan

My vision is to support branches to collect the appropriate information while on projects to ensure that each intervention taught is beneficial to the children and adults we aim to help.

My mission is to utilise the current information and data that we have collected throughout recent projects to help understand the areas in which SKIP is already helping and to identify where we can improve. I will do this by working closely with the branches and members of the national committee.

I first became involved in SKIP in 2012 when I became a volunteer for SKIP Cardiff and became the child protection training co-ordinator for the branch. This very quickly escalated into me leading a group of 12 volunteers to teach sexual education and puberty to children in Zambia for 4 weeks. I absolutely loved my time in Zambia, which motivated me to become the assistant project co-ordinator for SKIP Cardiff. After university I decided to leave SKIP to focus on my career… but they couldn’t keep me away for long!

One of the things I’m most excited about this year I am excited to catch up with old friends and find out how each project has developed over the past year, since I’ve been away! I am also looking forward to getting more involved in the research and development of SKIP as a whole – something I did not get to do much of at branch level.

Outside of SKIP I am a qualified children’s nurse working on a ward in Bristol. Outside of work I enjoy meeting up with friends, usually over a drink or food! I also like swimming and play hockey.
