‘I first heard of Minstead Trust when I came to their fete where I witnessed and was impressed by the way in which people with learning disabilities were being supported and encouraged to take an active part in this fundraising event’.
‘It was meeting with the families of the people that Minstead Trust supports and seeing first hand the life changing impact of the work they do supporting adults with learning disabilities that inspired me to join the Board’.
‘I am motivated by a firm belief in the importance of promoting independence for people with learning difficulties, a core ethos of the Minstead Trust.
‘I was impressed by the quality of the Leadership Team, and as the Trust was clearly in a growth phase and I wanted to be part of the shaping of the future of Minstead Trust’.
As a governor of a special school, I was very aware of the challenges faced by young people with learning difficulties establishing themselves in their adult lives, so I was delighted to join Minstead with its person-centred ethos and diversity of support.
‘I am passionate about the role that people with learning disabilities can and should play in society and believe everyone has something to contribute. Seeing this ethos mirrored in Minstead Trust’s mission is what led me to find out how I could get involved’.
'On learning about the wider work of the Trust I was truly inspired by the positive and kind approach; empowering and nurturing each individual.'
‘Minstead has supported our son for nearly 30 years, and we have seen Minstead grow and thrive through that time. Minstead may have grown but its original core ethos still runs through everything it does. It is because of this that I decided to get involved.’
