Immense Sadness at TAWS following untimely death of our colleague Helen Baglee

We are very sad to announce that The Active Wellbeing Society (TAWS) have lost a dear friend and valued colleague Helen Baglee. Helen passed peacefully on the evening of 28th September 2020. Our grief and shock at this time is little compared to what Helen’s family must be feeling and our hearts and thoughts go out to them.

Helen joined us in Spring 2019 as Cluster Manager for South Birmingham. She made an immediate impact on the organisation, bringing with her a wealth of experience and networks from previous roles in the city. Recently, Helen took up the key role as our Health, Safety and Safeguarding Manager. She was well known and well liked in the organisation, and also extremely well known in her local community in Kings Heath.

“We are still all coming to terms with this sudden and heart-breaking news. The sense of loss within the organisation is palpable, and a testament to the esteem in which Helen was held, professionally and personally. Helen was passionate about helping communities and loved working with TAWS and her colleagues. This is a real loss to The Active Wellbeing Society and to our communities. Helen will be deeply missed. Over the coming months we will work with her family and friends to work out a fitting tribute to her and her work.

I know you will join me in sending our sincerest condolences to her family. Helen had a partner and young daughter, as well as a wider close circle of family and friends. We are in touch with them and will be able to provide more information about any arrangements in due course”

Karen Creavin, Chief Executive of The Active Wellbeing Society
