Shelter Cymru staff and Trustees are in a state of shock following the death of our Education and Youth Officer Rebecca Evans in a car accident this week.
Rebecca had been working for Shelter Cymru for five years building the education and youth information service which has helped thousands of young people to understand the practical steps young people need to take to live independently. Without her passion and commitment to young people many would have faced homelessness and uncertain futures
Under Rebecca’s leadership the education and youth work of Shelter Cymru had become highly regarded by schools, government and other organisations in the field and had made real impacts on the understanding of homelessness and housing need among young people.
Her colleagues are utterly devastated and all our thoughts are with her partner Alex Evans, our Communications Officer and their son Cianboth of whom survived the accident.
