Meet The Trustees
My involvement began as the parent of a teenager with learning disabilities looking for social activities in our local area; through the social opportunities that ALDAG provided many friendships were made. Over the years it has been so rewarding to be part of ALDAG as it has grown to include work opportunities and I know firsthand the impact that this has on self esteem “that’s where I work” - something that we all take for granted.
Tony has experience in the charity sector and has a son who works in our Re-Use It shop and is a member of Teens and Twenties.
I have been involved with ALDAG since it’s very earliest days and it has been a privilege to see it grow and develop over the years. It is a pleasure to be part of a charity supporting young people with a learning disability and help in the development of different opportunities.
Val was a School Business Manager in a Surrey special school and brings her skills of finance and people management as well as her passion for enabling young people with a learning disability to reach their potential.
To be involved in a local charity that provides so much for young people with learning difficulties is both worthwhile and fulfilling. It is not just a one way street for me as I get back so much in return, seeing the lives of our young people enriched and expanded through the work that ALDAG undertakes.
Jennie has worked in the special education sector as a teacher in a local special school and is keen to expand our members involvement in their local community - and have fun!
