Board of Trustees

As a charity, Northamptonshire Mind is governed by Charity Trustees – collectively known as the Board of Trustees. The Trustees carry the responsibility of company directors of Northamptonshire Mind.

 

The Board of Trustees carries the overall responsibility for ensuring that Northamptonshire Mind pursues its charitable objects, complies with its own constitution and relevant legislation and regulations and applies its resources exclusively to its objects.

 

The Board of Trustees determines Northamptonshire Mind's strategies; approves its financial plans, annual report and accounts and governance structure, makes key appointments (Chief Executive Officer) and monitors Northamptonshire Mind's strategic performance.

 

To facilitate the smooth running of Northamptonshire Mind, the Board of Trustees has established a number of                  sub-committees. The terms of reference for each committee have been approved by the Board of Trustees.

I have been a Trustee of several charities and became a Trustee of Wellingborough Mind in 2015.  Initially a Board Member, I became Chair in 2019 and was involved in the original discussions to merge the Local Mind Organisation in the County in 2019. 

I am married with 5 grown up children and too many grandchildren to count.

I have been in education for 21 years, working in schools for children with special educational needs and disability. Currently I am CEO of Creating Tomorrow academies Trust (3 special schools and a specialist 16-25 college) with the mental health and wellbeing of staff and students as one of my key responsibilities.

Outside of work I’m kept grounded by 3 children (2 at secondary and 1 at university) and my partner’s 2. Weekends are often taken up by teaching karate and either ferrying to football or trying to relax by following football – as a Liverpool supporter this can be difficult!
