Our Staff and Trustees

Our Staff Team 

David Crawford, our Secretary, is supported by Jane Crawford and Gill Wright.  The team manage the daily functions of the Trust and are the point of contact for families enquiring about support.   

A member of the team establishes contact with applicants to discuss their application.  In most cases, a home visit may be required (Covid compliant).  They undertake the necessary preparatory work to enable our Grants Committee to make informed decisions about new applications and subsequent reviews of grants.  They maintain a supportive link with existing beneficiaries.

Duncan Cashmore is Chairman of our Board of Trustees, whose membership includes a wealth of knowledge and experience of Commercial Travelling, Education, Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, Finance and Governance. 

We are fortunate that, as most of our Trustees are either former beneficiaries or parents of a former beneficiary, they each bring to the Board a personal understanding of the Trust, as well as their professional expertise.
