Our Trustees

  • set strategic direction and vision;

  • ensure that the organisation is meeting their objectives and performance targets;

  • put carers needs at the heart of the organisation.

Our Patron

We are delighted that Dame Philippa Russell DBE is our Patron.

Dame Philippa lives in West Sussex.  She is a parent of an adult son with a learning disability and has many contacts with voluntary and user organisations with an interest in disabled children, young people and their families.   She is a member of the Cross-Government Programme Board on the National Carers Strategy and is a former Chair of the Government’s Standing Commission on Carers.

She was made a Dame in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in 2009 for services to disabled children, young people and family carers.  She campaigns and lobbies nationally on behalf of carers to change things for the better across NHS and Social Care services and to improve carers’ rights.
