Monday 4 to Friday 8 November 2019 marks Trustees' Week, an annual event set up by the Charity Commission to "showcase the great work that Trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference". To mark the occasion, we'd like to introduce you to Stephen Brearley, our Chair of Trustees.
No stranger to the work of CHICKS, Stephen has been associated with the charity for over a decade. "I have been involved with CHICKS for the past 15 years as a volunteer, Respite Break Leader, referral agent and Trustee," he explains in the latest issue of the CHICKS Magazine. "CHICKS is like a second home to me, and I have so many fantastic memories of working directly with some of the most wonderful young people."
Stephen has recently been appointed to the role of CHICKS Chair of Trustees, having been a member of the Board since 2012. On his appointment, he comments: "It's a privilege to continue to play a part, and I intend to do all I can to ensure that CHICKS continues to make memories for many more young people for years to come."
Andrew Dean, Chief Executive Officer, adds about Stephen, "We are all very excited with the appointment of Steve as Chair. Steve has been part of CHICKS for many years and his experience will help the charity grow yet further. I look forward to working with him and the Board of Trustees as we look to support many more young people."
Our Trustees play a pivotal role in guiding the charity to operate at the highest professional standard, with the aim of helping as many disadvantaged children as possible. You can read more about the full Board of Trustees on our Trustees page.
