VoiceAbility is a User Led Organisation (ULO). This means that the majority of people in our Board of Trustees have a lived experience of disabilities
Peter has served on boards of various charities in the past, including Housing 21, WPF Therapy and CIBC Children’s Foundation and brings with him a wealth of financial and governance experience.
Peter has a particular interest in working with people to raise their voices and really be heard after fighting with his son, who has a disability, for the right to complete his degree education.
A key issue for Peter are the changes in health and social care funding and how organisations can adapt to offer quality services within the means available to them.
