I’m passionate about getting involved in communities to ensure that these communities achieve their full potential. For me, that’s working with people and making sure that services are sustainable, co-produced and ‘future-proofed’ for generations to come.
Elected as the youngest county councillor in Wales in 2017, Josh has been involved in communities, policy and local government services for five years. He led on a service review in waste and led the council’s journey towards being a Net Zero carbon local authority by 2030.
As part of his passion for public service, Josh has put his energy into community work and capacity building. He is the secretary of the award-winning charity, the VC Gallery, helping to establish a support network and system for veterans. This is alongside leading a successful inclusion project of £100,000 to improve a park in Pembrokeshire from project inception to delivery. How policy and strategy relates to service users is vital to community success and wellbeing.
External to local government, Josh is an alumni of the Future Generations Leadership Academy, representing Wales and the office of the Commissioner at the United Nations and other events across Wales and globally. He is the Young Person’s lead for the Co-Production Network for Wales and he has extensive experience in working with third sector organisations around time-banking and regional projects that promote community services and wellbeing. His most recent post is working in health as an Outreach Officer in engaging disadvantaged and marginalised communities to access healthcare.
Josh is a proud public servant who puts people at the heart of the services he works to improve and re-design.
