I’m Becky mum of Joseph, I have struggled with social activities since school, I was never one to be centre of attention wouldn’t put my hand up to ask questions as felt myself going bright red. As I grew older my friends settled down and had families of their own and due to struggling with infertility issues I found I would distance myself from them. My four walls were my safe haven the TV and social media were my best friend as well as comfort eating. I then moved away from everything and everyone I knew, out of the Town I grew up in, to move in with my partner, which has again isolated me, not knowing anyone here. I then found the group GMOTFW, it took several attempts for me to attend, but once I did Charlie made me feel welcome and I knew then I wanted to help others in the same situation. I am looking forward to getting out and helping others with social anxiety and also it will do me some good to leave my four walls and meet new people.
Hey, my name is Adam (or Adz). I am a stay at home Dad of two girls living in Thetford. I have worked in childcare and education for years and ran my own children’s party and music/storytelling sessions business for a few years. I suffer from mental health issues so getting out of the house and meeting new people was so important to me when I became a stay at home Dad. So, when I discovered GMOTFW I knew I needed to get involved. I look forward to meeting you at any Thetford meets.
Hello, my name is Rachel and I am really excited (and a tiny, huge bit nervous) to be joining the Get Me Out The Four Walls family. I am a mum of 1 and live with my son and my husband in Loddon. I moved to Norwich in 2005 to complete my teacher training and here I stayed. Despite living here for many years I have never really been one to put myself out there, often finding excuses to not go and meet new people. I always find myself worrying that I am forcing myself on people. Since having my little boy this has probably got worse and despite always being busy forcing myself for him to got to classes etc. I have always found myself on the periphery of baby groups/ toddler groups. When I saw GMOTFW were looking for ambassadors I decided to use it as a kick up the bottom and get back out there. I am primary trained (8 years in EYFS) with a particular interest in SEN which has led me to my current dream job in a complex needs school. I also have a particular interest in children’s mental health having fought many of my own battles. I will be arranging meets in the South of Norfolk, towards the coast and along the Norfolk/Suffolk border.
Hi my name is Ian and I’m from the NR3 area. I have two young daughters. I currently hold Lego club on a monthly basis and hope to hold more regular meets in the future.
Hi I’m Terri, I live in Norwich city centre with my three children Holly, Phoenix and Erika. I will be arranging meets in and around the city and now that I can drive I will be arranging meets further afield. Please feel free to contact me anytime and if you would like to meet up before any scheduled meets then please do not hesitate to say so. I look forward to meeting you soon!
Hi I’m Caroline and I live in mile cross, Norwich with my husband Martin and kids, Jessica-May, Isabelle and Orion. I don’t drive so most of my meets will be either the mile cross/catton area or in the city centre. Looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible.
I’m Fern, I have a four year old son who will be starting school this year. I’m based in Norwich and most of my meets are within Norwich city centre. I became an ambassador in 2018 after attending meets and finding the charity so welcoming and helpful in improving my confidence and getting me out.
I have three children aged 7, 5 & 11 months. I discovered GMOTFW after having my third baby and finding motherhood extremely isolating! I am based in the Kings Lynn area and I am also a trainee therapist.
Hi, so I’m Jeanette, mummy to Orion. I will be doing meets in and around Norwich. I’m the nice kind of crazy, hair colour changes generally seasonally but never a colour you won’t see from miles away. Looking forward to meeting new people and having fun times.
Hi, I’m Hayley, I’ve been an Ambassador since early 2016. I live in Taverham with my husband Ant and our five children, Alicia (2002), Kaitlyn (2008), Jack (2006) and twins Charlie and Louis (2014). I host meets all over Norwich and Norfolk. As all my children now go to school I will mainly do breakfast and cafe meets. Please do come along and join me with or without little ones. School holidays I will do meets to suit all ages. Will also try and do some evening meets cinema, dinner etc. Looking forward to meeting you at a meet.
Hi I am Sherrie and I am an ambassador who lives in the NR3 area. I have two daughters called Elizabeth and Victoria. I am happy to meet people prior to events if you would like a bit of support. I’m also available for any 1-1 support sessions that you may wish to have. I am very passionate about the charity and wanting to get help for parents, as well as enjoying the great outdoors.
I’m a single mum or two boys, Theo (7 in October) and Albie (2 in July). I’m a happy and helpful person and GMOTFW has really helped me meet new mums and dads and get out of the house. I suffer with depression and anxiety so it has been a learning curve for me, and having all these wonderful mums and dads around me made me want to help others – which is why I became an ambassador!
My name is Cherie, I’m a stay at home mum, and my little girl Evie was born in 2018. We live in Thetford and we love all kinds of activities, indoors or outdoors. Please feel free to contact us if you fancy doing anything together.
My name is Lucy, I have three children; Lily who is about to start high school and twins Jack and Harry. I am a single mum and one of the Norwich ambassadors; I became an ambassador because life can become very lonely when you have young children, so I found it a lovely way to actually get to meet new people, most people seem to vanish when you have little ones!
I am always willing to help out where I can, I’m a qualified personal trainer so I’m hoping to arrange some classes where children can be involved too in the near future at Castle Mall as one of my meets, I usually have meets either around Norwich or Whitlingham.
Hi, my name is Nikki and I am one of the ambassadors. I have a little boy named Elijah (2016) and we live in Holt. I mainly do meets around the Holt area, including park meets and swimming.
I suffer with PND and I found it quite hard to leave the house, until I found Get Me Out The Four Walls. At first I was quite nervous about going to meets but the ambassadors put my mind at ease.
My decision to become an ambassador was because there were no local ambassadors to me and I couldn’t drive so I wasn’t able to get to meets very easily. Being an ambassador has helped me build my confidence up and has helped me meet new people, which I never thought I would do.
