Liz is the Managing Director of Bridging the Gap Together!, an independent Community Interest Company working on behalf of children and young people with complex needs or disabilities. It also supports their parents.
Liz was initially made aware of Supportive Parents back in 2002 when her son was undergoing diagnostic assessments for autism. Another parent recommended the help provided by Supportive Parents.
For Liz this was the beginning of a long standing association with Supportive Parents. She signed up to the parent course ‘SEND and You’ and went on to gain an in-depth knowledge of SEND in her own time, becoming both a committee member and branch officer of her local National Autistic Society. She was also later a parent rep for Supportive Parents.
As a trustee, Liz hopes to use her knowledge and experience in any way she can to support the organisation.
