Our team

Margaret Collins

Margaret is a Quietly confident speaker, coach and trainer. She and her partner, Rebecca, care for her sister Lynn since Margaret and Lynn’s father died. Margaret started CABS-Cardiff after Lynn wasn’t able to re-enrol for Maths and English Classes because priority was given to people who hadn’t been on them before.

Margaret knew how much the classes had helped Lynn to become more able to handle money and write messages on birthday cards. So she decided to make more classes available fo Lynn and her friends.

Rebecca Ballard

Rebecca is a Computer Trainer and Singing Geek. Together with Margaret, Rebecca cares for Margaret’s sister Lynn. She helped Margaret establish CABS-Cardiff in 2018 and acts as the charity’s Treasurer.

Fran Pears

Fran is a teacher with 30 years experience. She has been helping learners in the UK and Europe in that time. Her mission is to help learners to acquire new skills by fostering an excitement for learning and a curiosity about our world in a supportive yet challenging environment. She has extended that experience by being a tutor in the Learning Clubs that CABS-Cardiff provides.

Ruth Bradshaw

Ruth is a professional musician, singer and Choir leader. She facilitates community music across the spectrum of people with and without disabilities. “I believe in the power of music in providing a means for self expression, to empower, and to enhance a person’s health and well being.”

Ruth will be leading our new Music Club, which starts early in 2020.

Lynn Collins

Lynn is an adult with Williams Syndrome, a learning disability. She was very sad when she couldn’t re-enroll onto the Maths and English classes in another organisation. Lynn is very proud of the work her sister has done in setting up CABS-Cardiff and loves the Learning Clubs!
