We have a team of seven people currently on our board of trustees. The trustees meet every other month to discuss progress, make strategic decisions, oversee safeguarding and to hold the management team to account.
Helen Attree – Chairperson

Ceri Bannister – Vice Chairperson
Ceri worked as a Play worker for Malvern Special Families and is now a qualified teacher within a small unit for pupils with Special Educational Needs. She is proud of the quality of our provision, our dedicated staff, our close collaboration with families and our charity’s vision.
Margaret cares for one of the young people attending our clubs. She has retired from teaching, but does a lot of work for local charities on a voluntary basis and is a school Governor.
Andrew Caws – Treasurer
Andrew is a parent of a young person attending our clubs. Andrew has an accounting business in Worcester and has been a trustee since 2010.

Sarah has retired from teaching, most recently as Deputy Head, and does a lot of voluntary work with local choirs and church activities. Sarah has supported Malvern Special Families for many years and we are very happy to have her on board officially since 2014.
Judy brings a wealth of expertise to the MSF Trustee board. She grew up with an older sister with learning difficulties so knows, at first hand, what a difference family support can make. Judy is looking forward to visiting the Clubs and Play schemes to meet the children, young people and their families and experience MSF’s quality provision.
Alison was a care worker for MSF many years ago and now works for a Marketing and technology company in Birmingham. She is keen to be involved with MSF, helping the team to grow and develop whilst continuing to consistently deliver the amazing care and support to families – the foundation of MSF.
