Jennifer Matthews

Jennifer started volunteering for the Charity in 2020. In her spare time, she helps Louise and the team work on the Education aspect of Absafe and is helping develop the wellbeing program that Absafe is offering to schools, teachers and young people.  

Jennifer qualified as a Teacher in 2018 from the University of Chester after she specialised in the physical, social and emotional health of pupils. She went on to work in EBD schools where children and young people’s wellbeing was the most important aspect of her pedagogy. She has also worked with professionals delivering Dialectical Behavioural Therapy training to NHS staff and private clinic staff. She now works for the NHS in the Improving Patients Access to Psychological Therapies department and hopes to be a Mental Health Professional in the future. 

“I love working with Absafe. I think that the charity is invaluable to the schools and young people of Aberdeen. Health and safety should be at the forefront of all young people and children’s life experiences and is something which will help them flourish into well-rounded and knowledgeable adults. I believe Absafe offering a wellbeing program will be priceless tool to support the people of Aberdeen and I am excited to get stuck in with this.”
