Community Project Assistant
I am Ruth Elertowicz and I am a Community Project Assistant for Strathmore Community Rugby Trust, a role I started in June 2019. I enjoy my role with the Trust, I especially like seeing the kids having a good time and enjoying themselves. It is a privilege to see how far some of the children have come since starting Autism-Friendly Rugby. Some children have really embraced the ASD rugby and you can see first-hand the benefits it is having on them.
As well as being a rugby coach I am also a mum of two, so I feel I bring a maternal edge to my role. I can understand and empathise with the parents as well as the children. I am also an Early Years Assistant within my professional life, so I have experience of working with children in an educational setting. In addition to this I hold Rugby Union SCQF Level 4 (UKCC Level 1), NC Early Education and Childcare qualifications
