I have always worked in a children and families setting and started my career caring for adolescent boys with SEND. My experience of working with charities dates back to 2001 when I started work as a project worker with young carers and their parents. Since then I have managed 3 voluntary sector support organisations and the Carers Centre in Hambleton and Richmondshire. I have gained experience in setting up charities and supporting them with development and representation.
Anita is the founder and Co-ordinator of POSCH. She is a parent of two very lively children and her oldest son has autism. As a parent carer Anita understands the joys, frustrations and exhaustion sometimes experienced in bringing up a child/young person with additional needs.
Like most people Julie first visited POSCH during a time of crisis in 2015 and the experience was so profound that she has never left! Julie subsequently joined the board in 2016.
POSCH has a board of professional advisers.
