Nick Evans - The Chief Executive Officer for Cymryd Rhan
As Chief Executive Officer I am proud to be part of the philosophy and principles that Cymryd Rhan commits to. My focus, as an organisation, is that we will only do things which have a direct impact on the lives of the people we know, support and care for.

I started my working life supporting young children in a nursery. After that, I went on to setting up activities for disabled people in a centre. Being in my early twenties I got bored of being in a centre all day, so I decided to start exploring with the people I was supporting. Choosing to go out and get involved with activities in the community instead. This really took off, and I was asked to manage the service initially. Over time I became the operations director. Then I moved to Wales and became a police officer for several years. Before taking a career break to professionally race the British Sled Dog Team all over the world. After 8 very successful years of racing, I retired and joined Powys County Council Commissioning Services. Which was how I got to know about Cymryd Rhan.

I am married, I have four dogs, a budgie, three pet pigs and three horses which I love spending time with. One of them is just a youngster and not able to be ridden yet. But my ambition is to ride him at events when he is old enough… I am also a massive fan of motorsport. And I have a motocross bike which, when I have time I enjoy riding up the Hafren forest which is close to where I live. I really love going over huge jumps on it and pushing my abilities when riding it.
