Carolyn has been with the organisation since it was first established in 1989 and has been the Chair of the organisation since 2007. She was told about the original university study whilst trying to find support for her own son and was disappointed by the lack of support available at that time. She attended a parent meeting and became a volunteer once the organisation was established. Prior to retirement, Carolyn worked as a Learning Support Assistant for 26 years in a Primary school in Bristol. Carolyn is one of our longest serving Trustees and sees her role as an opportunity to give back to the service that helped support her all those years ago.
