Our Trustees have a range of qualifications and experience but we all have an interest in fostering, adoption and therapeutic care.
Trustees are currently:
Sheila has 21 years as a foster Carer and 20 years as Principal Advisor Foster Care at ISP Fostering Agency. Currently a Relief Society President for her church and chair of a Foster Carer Forum as well as a trustee on The Spark Foundation Charity.
Dave was appointed as a Trustee in late 2020. He is semi-retired but still sits on the main board of a group of construction based companies operating throughout the south east of England. He is a Quantity Surveyor by training.
He has a wealth of experience of general management and strategic planning including operating on a voluntary basis by acting as Chairman of a large multisport organisation for more than a decade. His involvement with the Trust allows him to help in providing assistance to deserving young people.
I am a qualified social worker and managed Children and Family teams for local authorities, specialising in child protection. For twenty years I managed a large part of a Therapeutic Fostering Agency which included education provision as well as social work support and therapy.
As well as sitting as a trustee I am a director of ALL4U fostering which is a therapeutic fostering agency.
As a trustee I enjoy the trust develop working relationships with charitable groups who are developing excellent services for young people. I believe in creating the opportunity for young people to develop and thrive in today’s world and work with my fellow trustees to develop the opportunities and support for people to build their lives and help others.
