The Council of Management draws its membership from a variety of backgrounds. Our trustees are:


Sian Davies

I am now retired after working in local government for over 40 years.  I am a qualified accountant and have a MBA from Cardiff Business School. My last employment was Managing Director of the Vale of Glamorgan Council.

The Amelia Farm Trust’s objectives of community engagement and supporting vulnerable and young people through its activities and natural environment, make an important contribution to improving lives. I relish my role in contributing to this work and am currently the Honorary Treasurer.

I am a school governor at Barry Comprehensive School and St Cyres Comprehensive School. I am also a Trustee for 3 other local charities.


Lisa Cordery Bruce

I have been a nurse for over 20 years, starting off in Medicine with a specialism in HIV, before becoming a Midwife in Llandough and then UHW. My interest in adolescent development led to my undertaking an MSc in Specialist community public health nurse public health nursing (School Aged Children). I am currently studying for my doctorate and looking at the early intervention and prevention of mental health issues in School Aged Children. 

I worked as a School Nurse but now run a multi-agency team which is led by Public Health. The team, called Switched On delivers education about Substance misuse and well being to all Children and Young People across Cardiff and The Vale. We support Schools and alternative educational environments to improve outcomes for Children and Young People.

Another part of my work for the Health Board requires that I embed Children's Rights into our values and daily practice. I developed a Children and Young Peoples Health Charter and have set up a Youth Board to ensure Children and Young People have a say in decisions which affect them.

I believe firmly in the values of Amelia Trust Farm and the fantastic work which is done to help Children and Young People. The Farm embraces the robust evidence base of the Adverse Childhood Experiences research to make a real difference to young lives at a key time. Young People are encouraged to thrive and are given a sense of belonging at the Farm. I support and celebrate the work wholeheartedly.
