It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our long-serving trustee, Rachel Atkinson.
Rachel joined us in June 2017 and has been a committed member of the Board for the last six and a half years, recently extending her tenure to provide a further year of support to us, showing her dedication to the charity and the people who use our services.
She was a member of our Brand and Business Development Committee, who with the knowledge and experience of her day job in the civil service, helped shape our external facing profile amongst other things. She was also a key contributor and supporter of our strategy and values refresh in 2019 and very much embodied our believe in people ethos.
Rachel will be very much missed by the Board of Trustees, the Executive Leadership Team and colleagues across the organisation who had the opportunity to work with her.
On behalf of all of us we say thank you and pass on our love and condolences to her husband Kevin and all of her family.
