Comment on becoming an FRG Trustee:
“My own experience is that too often the parents, relatives and children most impacted by the decisions of the child welfare and family justice system are treated as an afterthought.
“If the UK is to have a child welfare and family justice system that works and acts justly, we need their voices and insights to be heard and acted upon from the bottom to the top.
“That’s it is a real privilege for me to become a trustee of the Family Rights Group and to support them and their work.”
