POSCH trustees

Andrea Hobbs - Trustee (Chair)

 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.
