BAB Programme Management Team

Adam ReesAdam Rees - Director

I moved to Bristol in September 2015 to start work as Director of BAB. My role involves leading and shaping the direction of the programme, developing and maintaining partnerships and relationships as well as ensuring Bristol Ageing Better is relevant and in a position to influence strategy across the city and region. In my previous role, I worked for the South Wales Police and Crime Commissioner, leading the Victim Services Portfolio, commissioning services and supporting third sector delivery. I have worked across a number of roles in Community Development and Community Empowerment, most notably establishing a community focussed programme within one of the most deprived areas of Cardiff that aimed to tackle isolation by improving health, learning and prosperity. 


Bianca Rossetti - Partnership Support Officer

After University I began a career in the publishing industry, working my way from Marketing Assistant to a role as an in-house Editor of nonfiction books. I was spending much of my spare time volunteering and decided to use that experience along with my project management skills to make an exciting move to the third sector. I started as Programme Administrator the month the BAB programme launched and am now thrilled to be working as Partnership Support Officer, making links with BAB’s ever-expanding list of partners and coordinating the Community Kick-Start Fund.


Carly Urbanski - Age Friendly Officer

After finishing my Masters at the University of Bristol I worked on a randomised controlled physical activity trial with primary school children. The completion of this project led me on to more community-based work as the coordinator of the South Gloucestershire Walking for Health programme.  Currently as the Age Friendly Officer, I am working towards applying to the World Health Organisations global network of ‘Age Friendly Cities’, ensuring Bristol will be an even better place to grow old.


Alex Mills - Programme Administrator

I have worked for a wildlife charity and now BAB/Age UK Bristol. I love the fact that BAB is making such a difference locally and will change city-wide thinking for the future! My current role is to cover the administration side of BAB and to be here if anyone needs to get in touch with BAB and find out more from the team.



Maria Lewis - Contracts & Finance Officer

After my Business studies in Germany, I worked for a publishing company in Bath for a couple of years and relocated to Bristol in 2015 to start working for a national humanitarian charity. Having found my passion in the third sector, I have joined the BAB team in October 2016 to work alongside the Programme Manager and Director as Contracts & Finance Officer. My role is to support the contract management of our delivery partners as well as maintaining the programme’s financial systems.


Silvia Jimenez Cruz - Communications Officer

After graduating from Sociology, I worked as an ethnographical researcher in my home country of Chile. I've been working in Communications in the UK charity sector since 2012 in different capacities. At BAB I am responsible for maintaining our communications channels and creating content for our website, email updates and social media.
