New Director appointed
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Charlie Draper to the position of Director, Clinical & Operational Services, YPWD. Reporting to the board of Trustees, Charlie will lead YPWD to ensure the smooth running of the charity as well as the long-term viability of YPWD.
Some of you will know Charlie as she was involved, along with some of our existing Trustees, right at the start of YPWD and helped to create a truly innovative model. She then worked for 6 years as Operations Manager with YPWD. On leaving YPWD she was instrumental in the setting up of a Home Care agency, again supporting younger people with dementia and has a real passion for supporting younger people with dementia and their families. More recently she returned to YPWD and has been instrumental in setting up our YPWD Surrey pilot programme which is already proving to be very successful and has secured funding beyond its initial 12-month trial period.
We will take this opportunity to bring YPWD Berkshire and our Surrey pilot together under Charlie’s leadership. Charlie will transition into her role over the coming weeks with her official start date being Monday 8th November.
Please join us in congratulating Charlie on her new appointment and no doubt you will get to meet her in person over the coming months.
Board of Trustees
