Signs of Dementia

Our Board of Trustees

We have a dedicated Board of Trustees who kindly volunteer their time to support and manage our charity.

Clare Gard
Vice Chair and Company Secretary

The pandemic was a very unsettling period of time for everyone and I decided that I wanted to give something back to the community and share some of my skills and knowledge. I was delighted when an opportunity to join the Board at Braid Health and Wellbeing became available. I have worked in the field of HR for almost 15 years and enjoy supporting and developing people to see them reach their full potential. I have a very strong process background and I ask lots of questions to ensure that everyone understands the bigger picture.

Heather Clark
Board Member

I am an enthusiastic, genuine and influential individual with over 14 years of experience in financial services. I have excellent interpersonal skills which, have been obtained from having to liaise and co-ordinate with all levels including senior leadership teams, internal/external stakeholders and also direct line reports. I am passionate about development and growing relationships whilst driving inclusion and diversity. I believe everyone should have the same access to support regardless of background and love the work that Braid Health and Wellbeing promotes in supporting elderly, vulnerable and sometimes isolated individuals.

Alyson McKenzie
Board member

I am an organised, motivated and hard-working individual with over 12 years’ experience working with Braid Health and Wellbeing. I have been fortunate enough to be part of the management team during this time, and have recently returned to join the Board of Trustees. I have Management, Charitable and Social Work experience in the care sector and look to bring this area of knowledge to help develop the business going forward.

“My son Paul attended the dark room today and we were met with friendly faces. We were taken round to the room by Tasha and my first impressions of the centre was that it had a lovely welcoming feel”. Paul was really looking forward to using the sensory room and indeed it didnt disappoint. Paul and his PA really enjoyed the experience and Paul is really looking forward to coming back. He couldnt wait to tell his dad all about it and became very animated when chatting about it. As a parent I was pleasantly surprised at the atmosphere and standards in the centre. I will be recommending the room to our friends whos sons/daughters may benefit from the rooms. Could I also add the rooms are ideally situated away from the hustle and bustle of the centre. The staff I met today were lovely”
