Lunch & Speaker Rhea Newman
6th April 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 2:15 pm
Rhea Newman joined Surrey County Council in October 2012 as part of a local government graduate programme. Rhea is now a Strategic Partnerships Manager leading a two year project to drive up volunteering in Surrey, sponsored by David Hodge, Leader of the Council. There are three main focuses in the project: supporting employees to volunteer through the employee volunteering scheme; enabling council services to make best use of volunteers; and working with the Councils for Voluntary Services to promote volunteering in the community. As part of this project Rhea has been leading an initiative to look at how the council can work more closely with community groups such as Rotary Clubs to better support Surrey communities and is currently working on a number of pilot projects with different Rotary clubs in Surrey.
