Steering Group

Ten parents/carers were elected to be part of the Steering Group.

Together they lead the Forum and represent the views of parents and carers at strategic meetings.

  • Amanda – Chair

  • Stephanie – Vice Chair

Parent of an autistic 12-year-old, governor in a special school and trustee in a charity breaking down attitudinal barriers regarding disability. A TV News Editor for 15 years, I am now studying therapeutic counselling in order to empower carers.

    • Mike

    What equips me to represent you is my background in the charity world, and as daddy to a son diagnosed on the autism spectrum, I have experience (like you I daresay) of the steep, unending learning curve such a diagnosis puts you on.

    • Carolyn
    • Trudy
    • Kate
    • Olivia
    • Rosalyn
    • Megan
