Comment on becoming an FRG Trustee:
“I am delighted to become a trustee for Family Rights Group – a charity that has been championing the safety and rights of families for over 50 years! I’m eager to use my professional and personal experience to ensure more children and families get the right support and have access to support available to them. I look forward to working with the other trustees to ensure that children and families continue to have their voices heard and that children grow up with a strong support network fulfilled with love and care.”
