Project Lead / Interim Chief Officer
My name is Lyndsey Williams and I am the projects lead, so I lead on the Môn Community Linc Social Prescribing project, Place Shaping and My Health Online project.
I have worked here nearly 10 years- I started in April 2013 as a project Manager for the Community Voices Programme
In my role as project lead I make sure the projects are running smoothly and that they are meeting their targets. I also look for funding for the projects to continue as well as identifying where they can also work with other schemes running such as the Warm Spaces.
I work with partners to raise awareness of our projects and also to identify opportunities to work together with other organisations such as Anglesey Council, the Health Board, North Wales Police and Welsh Government.
I am also working within Medrwn Môn on staff wellbeing and creating a programme of activities for staff to enjoy time together away from their desks.
We have a great team within Medrwn, all the staff are supportive of each other and there’s always a great atmosphere! Every day is different and there’s no time to sit still!
I enjoy identifying and working on new projects, joining up the dots and bringing people together.

Digital Support officer / Technology In Care
My name is Ceri Seeley and I am the Digital Support Officer at Medrwn Môn.
I have worked at Medrwn Môn for over 3 years.
In my current role I support individuals get online and register with the ‘My Health Online’ service, which is a service you can use to order your repeat prescriptions. For many people within our communities the move towards online appointments and consultations has left them feeling more disconnected than ever, due to barriers such as lack of access to the internet or devices to go online, skills and confidence to use the new systems or the lack of support from friends of family to get them started with the technology. As part of my project we have a ‘tech’ loan scheme to tackle some of these obstacles.
I enjoy that I have been able to support people venture into the digital world possibly for the first time, not only connecting them to their surgery, but also to communicate with friends and family who may not live locally. It’s also been very rewarding to see individuals gain skills and better their confidence in using technology.

Local Asset Co-Ordinator
My name is Awen Dodd and I work as a Local Asset Coordinator covering the Aethwy and Seiriol Ward on Anglesey.
I started working in partnership with Medrwn Môn in 2012 as an Engagement Officer with Llais Ni Youth Council and moved on to work as a Local Asset Coordinator in 2019.
As part of our social prescribing project, I support individuals and families of all ages to access local activities, groups, resources and opportunities within their community to improve their overall wellbeing. A vital part of my role is to build relationships with the people I support by listening carefully to what matters to them and what motivates them. It’s important to me that the person, and their family where appropriate, becomes an equal partner in the planning of their care and support, ensuring it meets their needs, goals, and outcomes.
The best thing about my job is seeing the people I support gain confidence to do something they've always wanted to do, and being part of the process that made it happen. It can be stimulating and rewarding work, with a real sense of fulfilment.
Working and supporting community volunteers during the pandemic was a complete privilege and an experience I will never forget. It was amazing to witness the community spirit during such a difficult time.
