Our Team

Wendy Imashev, Director and Community Consultant
Wendy is founder of Seamless Social Support Services and the Insight pilot project. She brings her professional skills of working in health and community services into her new role - supporting people in developing coping skills and strategies to successfully ‘re map’ their lives in a positive and enjoyable way. 

Two years ago, Wendy was diagnosed with Macular Degeneration, which presented her with many life challenges to overcome. Through the Insight pilot project, Wendy aims to support other sight impaired people to maintain their quality of life and guide them through their difficulties, gain confidence and get more out of life.

Wendy’s interests include walking, observing natural flora and fauna, water sports, travelling, good food and the arts. Most of all Wendy enjoys helping others and spending time with family and friends in the UK and overseas.
