Board of Trustees

ADHD Aware is governed by a Board of Trustees. All of our trustees are all volunteers with lived experience of neurodiversity (either themselves or a family member being neurodiverse).

Our trustees are responsible for ensuring the charity’s resources are managed and used to meet its purpose, in compliance with our constitution and the law. They are also responsible for conflicts of interest, safeguarding, and reporting to the Charity Commission.

Katie – Trustee & Acting Chair of the Board

Katie is a senior executive working in the technology sector with a 20+ year career in global FTSE100 companies.

She volunteered as Treasurer of ADHD Aware 2018-2022 and since served as Co-Chair, alongside Linda. During her time as Treasurer, Katie helped to more than quadruple ADHD Aware’s grant income, enabling significant expansion of our services.

Katie is neurodivergent and is proud to serve as an advocate, who speaks and writes regularly on the topic of neurodiversity. She is also on the Board of Trustees for both Autistica and ParaPride.

Amy – Trustee & Secretary to the Board

Amy has volunteered for ADHD Aware since 2020, and continues to be a key member of our newsletter team. Her keen awareness of the challenges neurodivergent people can face stems from having a close family member who is autistic.

She has a Masters degree in Community Psychology; a field which looks beyond the individual, to the impact societal factors can have on wellbeing.

Amy also volunteers with East Brighton Food Co-operative. She collects service-user data on behalf of this emergency food aid organisation, which often illustrates the difference that social interaction, inclusivity, and nutrition can make to a person’s mental health.

Dominique – Trustee & Treasurer

Dominique’s interest in mental health and peer support dates back to volunteering for Durham Nightline, a helpline run for and by students; and completing an introductory course in counselling skills.

Her professional background is in financial analysis, project cost control and accounting. More recently Dominique has worked as a Finance Manager in the private sector, and Executive Assistant in the charity sector.

Dominique began seeking an ADHD assessment in 2018 and was eventually assessed and diagnosed in 2021. She began volunteering with ADHD Aware in 2021 and was voted onto the Board as Treasurer in 2022.

Dave – Trustee

Dave works with perpetrators of domestic abuse, and has experience of working in social services, family centres, respite, residential, and therapeutic communities. His professional history includes youth work and teaching, ranging from working with excluded pupils up to final year undergraduates.

Dave has volunteered with ADHD Aware since 2018. He was a committee member before becoming a trustee. As well as contributing to video content and coming up with new ideas, Dave has co-facilitated our drop-in session, our supporting partners group meetings, and courses of weekly closed-group sessions which we ran in 2021 and 2024. He is awaiting an ADHD assessment.
