Cerebral Palsy Sport is delighted to welcome a new Trustees to its Board of Trustees following an external recruitment process and induction.

John originates from Essex and graduated with a Sports Technology degree from Loughborough University. He still lives in Loughborough and likes to spend his time away from work travelling, playing sport and dog walking in the countryside (whenever the weather allows!).

Cerebral Palsy Sport is governed by a Board of Trustees that bring a range of skills in supporting the organisation with governance decisions. The Board of Trustees consists of up to twelve independent individuals with a range of skills and competencies across key sectors that enables Cerebral Palsy Sport to operate as an effective strategic national disability sports organisation (NDSO), charity and a Limited company.

The Board of Trustees is responsible for setting the strategic direction of the charity and ensuring it performs well. Because of the charity’s significant role in the development of the sport, being a Trustee is a position of influence and great responsibility, now and for future generations.

Trustees are people who care passionately about Cerebral Palsy Sport and who recognise the vital contribution the organisation makes to the lives of people with disabilities.
