Trustees and Team Members!
My journey with Full Circle has been a long and changeable one. Back in 1980 I was the
Community Social Worker working from a basement flat in Brighton Street St Pauls. My journey with Full Circle is changing again as I hand over the Treasurer role to one of the new younger trustees and move back from a leadership role to more of a consultancy role within the trustee group. The changes over the years have been mind blowing in so many ways. The legacy has been the many successes along the way as young people who have used the project in the past have grown up and offered their own contributions to this community and other communities around the country.
I joined Full Circle about five years ago now, on the back of an open day invite. This came from a work colleague who was a longstanding trustee.
I had never been inside the Docklands building before and knew Full Circle had done well to secure premises with such potential. A chance conversation with a parent that day stuck in my mind. She challenged me to think about racism in schools.
Dr Jon Rogers
Jon has always been interested in ways of improving the lives of young people and the community. He has been closely involved with the acquisition of the Docklands building as part of a community asset transfer from Bristol City Council, with local partnerships, especially with our colleagues at ACE, and with the development of the new nursery, “Raised in St Pauls”.
He is keen to see Full Circle become more sustainable and further develop its potential to serve the community of St Pauls and the inner city.
Robishia Temple has a wide breadth of experience in community work and has been an active volunteer and mentor for the past 9 years. Robishia’s academic specialism and professional experience is in Business and HR and intends to use these fine-tuned skills to drive the wider goals and objectives of Docklands. In joining the board her desire is to improve not only the lives of our local communities now, but for the future generations to come.
I joined the Full Circle Board in September 2019. I applied for the role because I wanted to give back to the centre and community, having attended Docklands Youth club when I was a young girl living in the area.
It was a great outlet to be young and to socialise with friends and make new ones. As an adult, I better appreciate the time and effort put in by the staff. I am really looking forward to an onsite visit, once restrictions are lifted.
Tristan Sta Ines
Through my belief, I want to be able to give more knowing that I am immensely blessed and that led me to pursuing becoming a Trustee at Full Circle. I have a wide range of God-given gifts and continue to discover more that allows me to be able to be a blessing to others in my own little ways and these are hopefully gifts that I can share with Full Circle and the young people who we aspire to be a blessing to.
My journey with St. Pauls Holiday camp project now known as Full Circle project has been a pleasant part of my life for the last twenty years. We have been through many roller-coaster rides and I have never wanted to get off as at the forefront are the young people and the community we serve. I am proud to be part of an organisation who authentically do the work every day and will continue to do so.
Living and growing up in Bristol, I’ve always felt a part of the city and have been shaped by its activism, its creativity and its DIY and community led attitude. I’ve had many years to explore different cities and have settled back in my home town with the aim of bringing the skills I acquired in accessing resources (funding), bringing ideas to life (project management) and sustainable management of community buildings into the communities and projects that are delivering the most, but are sometimes overlooked. I have worked locally in Hamilton House and St Werburghs Community Centre, and have supported many local organisations access funding to get their projects off the ground such as Vocalise and Interculture.
