The trustees of Hampshire Parent Carer Network(HPCN) announce that Gail Bedding, CEO will be leaving the charity at the end of 2018 after many years of service in ensuring that parents and carers of SEND children have a voice in the development and decision making affecting them and their families. Gail has decided to move on in her career and we wish her the best in her new endeavours.
In the interim HPCN will continue to operate under the leadership of a management committee, which will be formed from members of the Trustee board. This committee will be supported on a day to day operating basis by Lorna Hunter-Caple and Jenny Murray, who are existing team members. The trustees are already looking at options for the future to secure the excellent reputation that HPCN has developed in recent years. This must be done with full recognition of the funding available and with particular thanks to the many volunteers and participation workers who support the work of the charity on the ground. We ask our key stakeholders to bear with us as we seek to review the work of HPCN and its impact across Hampshire. We hope that you will understand that the charity may not be able to meet every request for parent carer engagement at this time. In the interim please email or contact the team (Jenny Murray and Lorna Hunter-Caple) at the HPCN office - Tel: 01962 853152 or email email@example.com.
Trustees would like to thank everyone for the support you have given HPCN over the last year and wish you a wonderful festive season.
Chair of Trustees
