Meet our Team
I have been Chair of the Trustees for some years now, bringing a wealth of knowledge & experience to the role which is essential for supporting our families. I am married to Matt and we have our daughter Izzy who is 16 years old. A recent addition to our family is Nikita, Izzy’s assistance dog. Izzy has a unique set of disabilities including cerebral palsy, Epilepsy, global development delay and is registered blind having been diagnosed in 2010 with a rare genetic mutation on the COL4A1 gene. So rare, that at the time they discovered it, she was the only one in the world, until they tested me as I have it too! As an active member of our community I am also a parent rep for the Warrington Parent & Carers forum and a parent governor at my daughters’ school.
I have overall responsibility for the delivery and provision of Sport Works services. I am a sports fanatic, a particularly passionate supporter of all things rugby being a Referee and Treasurer at Warrington Rugby Union Football Club. I am a Trustee of 2 local charities which support people with disabilities.
I’m Becca and mum of 3 boys aged 16, Patrick 14, and 10. Pats has a significant learning disability as a result of his rare syndrome, alongside autism. He loves getting out and about inc to the cinema, theatre, and anything that gives him real vestibular feedback ie rides! I’ve been a member of FUN for 10 years then became a Trustee as I wanted to give something back because of what we’d gained from it as a family- I’ll never forget Pats being able to sit ski! I’m lucky enough to work, as a social worker, and I love playing football and badminton, and drinking wine!
I am mum to two gorgeous boys, Dylan and Finley and a menagerie of animals including 2 dogs, 4 chickens, a cockerel and a hamster! I love nature, animals and the great outdoors so have really enjoyed our activities that incorporate these although I enjoy all our activities! I also love finding new venues for our families to access. My family has been a member of FUN since 2009 shortly after Dylan was born and I am proud to be part of a charity that supports all disabilities.
I joined Families United as a member family in 2017 and as a trustee early 2019. I am mum to 2 very energetic children. Dylan who has Grin1 Variant, a rare genetic condition, and Megan who may one day take over the world! I work part time as a helpdesk coordinator bringing a wealth of administration & customer service focus to the running of FUN. My hobbies include CrossFit and baking.
I lived in South Africa for 22 years, returning in 1995 to teach in supported learning at Warrington collegiate. I joined Families United in 2004, opening our first office in museum street. Alongside FUN, I support adults with SEND at the Walton Lea Project. My hobbies include rowing and travelling with my partner.
