Board of Trustees

Originally, our Board was made up entirely of parents whose children attended our service. Over time, the Board has diversified and now includes nine people from varying backgrounds (all volunteers) who work together to support our activities, manage our finances and influence the charity’s direction. Our Trustees are Nic Jepson (Chair), Alison Brooks (Vice-Chair), Becki Brooksbank (Treasurer), Carole Luckwell, Richard Andrews, James Jones, Jenny Byrne (parent), Rob Evans and David Allum (parent).

Our Patron and ambassadors

With new Patron, Richard Whitehead MBE  our ambassadors now include Len Simmonds, Jackie Clark, Caroline Samworth, Lisa Fox, and Sarah Vearnals. All highly motivated, enthusiastic and articulate people able to share some of their knowledge, skills and specialist areas to further the development of Footprints CEC.

United through their involvement, ambassadors create positive change in the lives of children with motor disorders such as cerebral palsy and Down’s syndrome, supporting their parents with the knowledge, confidence, and strength they need to understand and support their child’s additional needs.

They serve as a focal point and are a ‘knowledge and experience bank’ providing invaluable support to trustees.

In fact, ambassadors are the finest public relations tool we could have!
