We love meeting you the most, but here is a little about our team…

Though we may be small, we are mighty.

About Our Team.

Dave Morris

Dave is our hairiest team member and the face you will see the most of. He has an abundance of love, energy and passion, which he pours into everything he does. Dave delivers all of our workshops, training sessions, one-to-ones, parties and events. It’s a good job he is full of beans! Dave is a dab hand with a guitar so its lucky he isn’t performance shy and can sing plenty well enough for his supper. It is frequently fed back to us that Dave has a kind of magic that reaches even the people most often left out. When asked what he loved about his work, he said ‘the smiles’, and there are always plenty of those. This is why Dave is another secret sauce ingredient (another terribly kept secret). In short, he’s The Man.

Ellie Evans

If Dave is our front man, Ellie is our brains. She pours hours and hours of her time (when she isn’t busy with three wilful, wonderful children) into ensuring all of our services are full to the brim with meaningful and enriching content – nothing is in our workshops by accident! Ellie is responsible for our participants increasing their motor skills, literacy, numeracy, language, world knowledge, personal and emotional development, sensory experiences, celebrating diversity, creative thinking and so much more. Ellie’s knowledge is extensive and seemingly effortless, though she works incredibly hard to make sure every participant benefits as much as possible; a speciality of hers is getting to know people to ensure their needs are met. In short, she rocks.

Debbie Fish

Debbie told our web-developer that she isn’t very good at selling herself, so we will do it for her. If it wasn’t for Debbie, KeyCreate wouldn’t exist. People may not see her face as often as Dave and Ellie’s, but her value to our little organisation is immeasurable. Debbie is the glue that holds us together. She skilfully manages our finances and funding; keeps our policies up to date; manages our insurance; ensures we’re working in line with all of the appropriate legislation; deals with all of our governance and liaises with our funders, sponsors and the Community Interest Company Regulator. Debbie is responsible for keeping us running as a successful organisation, so in short, she is a super woman.

Wowsers. What a team, hey?!

Our Other Volunteers

KeyCreate wish to extend a special thank you to Angela Thomas and Bryher Fae-Davies. Without volunteers we would not be able to offer what we do!

Angie has supported us extensively over the years. By helping with photography, playgroups and workshops, she helped us operate. We’ve been able to work in new environments due to her networking and social media skills, too.

Bryher has helped us with all sorts in the past. From assisting with photography, technology and playgroups through to creating this website, she has been an asset.

Big thanks to Kidipics and Paul Fears, too. Thanks to their lovely images, our site looks very swanky. Without the help of Ben Church – TinyDigital, and his expert knowlegde, we may never have gotten this site launched, found or backed up safely. Thank you Ben!

Sustainable and Green.

Something of utmost importance to KeyCreate is that we have as small a footprint as possible where the environment is concerned. Our aim is to produce as little waste as we can; to recycle as often as we’re able; and to always use sustainable sources. We aim to do this with items we use in day to day life. KeyCreate strives for this in all of our service planning and delivery and all of our funding applications, too; we are a family and Earth is our house. If we want an inclusive society, we know its essential to start by taking care of our planet; by setting good examples for the children we encounter and raise, we hope the future will be brighter.

Testimonials About Our Team

“Fun, amazing, happy, lots of smiles”

“It was 100% inclusive and all of the children got something out of it despite very different ages and abilities. I loved how genuinely celebratory it was of the input from each child, no matter how small i.e G. vocalising or M. scratching the drum – it’s really that which makes it special and needed and different from mainstream music classes where we are super self conscious that G. can’t hold the instruments or sing like the other kids. There were good opportunities for developing basic skills such as making choices, communication, fine motor skills. Great multi-sensory stimulation. Lovely relaxed vibe and I liked that you let some activities be guided by what the kids were doing i.e N. dressing as the sun! I liked the inclusion of some music education.”

“I want all parents of kids with special needs to know about it!”

“So impressed with what Dave does – it really connects with M”

“I genuinely think it is a wonderful thing and you were brilliant. G. was totally captivated and engaged through the whole thing, which for a 2 year old in a 2-hour workshop says a lot!”

“It was good to see everyone enjoying it and smiling”, “Great participation by staff and service users”

“Dave is a superb resource and his sessions are pure sunshine for our pupils with profound and multiple learning difficulties. All of our pupils who have accessed his sessions have been motivated and engaged throughout. Their responses to his activities have been a pleasure to observe. We look forward to further opportunities to use his service.”

“One of the best training sessions so far!”
