Local business woman and experienced Trustee of heritage organisations joins our Trustee Board

Suffolk born and bred, Sharon Goddard enjoyed a varied career as a teacher and manager in further and higher education giving her a wealth of experience to bring to her new role supporting Suffolk Family Carers.

Sharon said: “I am delighted to be invited to join the Trustee Board at Suffolk Family Carers. It is a great privilege to work with such dedicated and experienced professionals in providing the very best services and support to family carers of all ages across Suffolk.”

Sharon’s personal experience of being a family carer led to her setting up Caring4EldersUK which works with companies to support employees with carer responsibilities.

Janet Dillaway, Chair of Trustee Board, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Sharon as a Suffolk Family Carers Trustee. I am confident she will be a valuable asset to our team and I look forward to working with her to continue and develop the vital services we provide to family carers across Suffolk.”

All Suffolk Family Carers Trustees, including the Chair, undertake their roles in a voluntary unpaid capacity. For more information on becoming a member of the Trustee Board at Suffolk Family Carers please call 01473 835477 or visit www.suffolkfamilycarers.org.
