In April 2020, I was honoured to take up the role of Chair of Quarriers’ Board of Trustees, along with Vice-Chair Michael Greaves. On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank our previous Chair Tom Scholes and previous Vice-Chair Sheila Gillies for their fantastic work over the years. The organisation has benefited enormously from their tenure and they leave very big shoes to fill. Thank you also to Patricia Cunningham, George Peacock and Ian Williams for all their work during their time as Trustees.
Quarriers’ Board of Trustees is made up entirely of volunteers, each with their own unique skills, experience and insight. But one thing unites us: our belief in the incredible work that Quarriers does. We are proud to play our part in this remarkable, life-changing organisation. I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead and how we can work together to support the people who use our services to reach their true potential.
Chair, Quarriers Board of Trustees
Like Alan, I took over at Quarriers in April 2020 from the previous Chief Executive, Alice Harper. I’m very grateful to Alice for the generous way in which she offered her time, and of course for the past six years, during which she led this fantastic charity. She, like I, was continually blown away by the quality of our services and the dedication of all those who help the people we support reach their true potential. As an organisation, we have faced a range of challenges but we have and will work together to overcome these.
At Quarriers we approach the future positively – we now know that the world will be forever changed by the impact of COVID-19. Our service delivery has adapted, our staff have risen to the challenge, our connections have strengthened – and most importantly, people continue to be safe, well, happy and supported.
