We have an active trustee board who meet bi-monthly for trustee meetings and all trustees also contribute to sub-committee groups, which meet in the alternating months. Our trustees are enthusiastic and highly committed to the children we support; our meetings are lively and interesting, each trustee bringing their own expertise from many differing backgrounds.
Pat Cadey, Chair
Pat has been our Chair since 2013 and brings a wealth of experience as a former State Registered Nurse, nanny, foster parent, child minder, and as a parent to six children! She has 15 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren yet still finds time to devote much energy and enthusiasm to her role at Time2Share! Pat has direct experience of the challenges of having a child with a disability as her granddaughter Ruby has Angelmans syndrome. Her family have received the support of a Time2Share befriender which has helped them in providing a variety of care and support for Ruby. Pat is responsible for overseeing the general running of the charity, supporting our CEO and staff team, raising our profile in the community and keeping trustees informed of issues and developments in the charity.
