We are delighted that Fayth Rowe, our Democratic Support Lead, was recognised at the recent Asian Fire Service Association (AFSA) awards.
Fayth received a Certificate of Merit for her work with young people, leading two programmes which are designed to provide them with transferable skills and real-world experience. She was nominated for the Champion of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion category.
Fayth has been instrumental in the setting up and running of our Summer Internship Scheme and coordinates RBFRS’ participation in the Leonard Cheshire’s Change 100 Programme.
Many of the young people taking part in these two programmes have already gone on to either achieve employment in the organisation or in their chosen field of expertise.
One of the young people who completed the summer internship programme said: “Fayth is not just a mentor; she is a true leader who invests in the development of those she oversees. Her dedication to nurturing talent and fostering growth is commendable, and I am a living testament to her outstanding mentorship. Fayth, thank you for being an inspiration and a guiding light in my career.”
