We are very lucky to have a dedicated, experienced management committee.
They give up their time, without claiming payment or expenses, to provide oversight and a strategic direction.
Jake Sinetos moved to Bristol and joined the Golden Key as Data and Contracts Manager in 2015, driving a system change approach with a partnership of 40 agencies and a focus on multiple and complex needs.
Prior to this Jake has had a range of roles within the voluntary sector, bringing an international perspective from his experiences in both the UK and the USA. He has focussed on project implementation management and dual diagnosis / multiple and complex needs.
Jake has a keen interest in community development, mental health and complex needs. He has a particular passion for developing sustainable support for people with complex needs by reducing stigma, encouraging multidisciplinary working and strengthening communication pathways between different agencies.
In his spare time Jake plays guitar, sings and produces music. He was lucky with his first gig, due to his friend having a cool older brother to show them good music and drive them to gigs; he got to see The Jesus and Mary Chain and The Cramps when he was 13 years old.
