Case Study: Leanne Wallwork: Out of Sight

“I’ve done a few roles within the charity – I was secretary, then became Chairperson, which is a role I love. I feel like I’m part of a family and it’s rewarding to know that the decisions we make at meetings really matter and it’s always with the children and families in mind.

It’s an important role being the Chairperson of Out of Sight and it’s also an enjoyable one because, although everything we do is all about the children, there is a fantastic team of parents, carers, trustees and volunteers working away in the background. I’d always encourage someone thinking about becoming a trustee to give it a go.”
