Rachel Rowlands

I am the Chief Executive Officer of Age Connects Morgannwg, a regional charity working with older people living in Rhondda Cynon Taf, Bridgend and Merthyr Tydfil, a position I have held since 2005.  I am also a Non-Executive Director of Age Connects Wales, a registered charity that works across Wales via national partnership projects and services.  In 2017 I was elected as the National Third Sector Representative to the Cwm Taf Morgannwg Regional Partnership Board (CTM RPB), becoming Chair in May 2018 and re-elected as Chair for a third year in May 2020.  I am also the National Partnerships Lead of the Together For Children and Young People Programme (T4CYP) and the Protect Workstream Lead of the region’s Test Trace and Protect Programme.
