Last week, the High Sheriff of Gwent, Malgwyn Davies OBE, visited our Trauma Recovery Centre in Newport to give a commendation to our CEO, Jackie Stamp, for her long service and dedication to New Pathways and for her passion and influence in ensuring those affected by sexual violence get the support they need.
The High Sheriff presented Jackie with a certificate and a letter of commendation: "You have championed the provision of high-quality services for victims of sexual violence at local, regional and national level, ensuring that thousands of people have received invaluable assistance."
High Sheriff Malgwyn Davies OBE also recognised the work of all of the staff at New Pathways and met with staff from all of our projects to hear about our services.
Jackie has been with New Pathways for more than 25 years, starting out as a volunteer counsellor. Over the years, Jackie has been instrumental in growing New Pathways to become the service it is today, with over 10,000 clients accessing our services and projects during 2021-22. Jackie took the helm as CEO in 2010, and thanks to her dedication, passion, tenacity and caring, tens of thousands of people across Wales have received the specialist support that they needed, and many lives have been changed for the better.
Thank you so much to the High Sheriff for taking the time to visit and for recognising Jackie and the work that we do. And congratulations to Jackie for the commendation, we wouldn't be the charity we are without you.
