Meet... Alison Thomas
Trustee since 2013
Tell us about your career
I have wide experience working with children in my career. This includes being a Cabinet Member for Children's Services at Norfolk County Council for three years and being on the adoption panel for four years.
Why did you decide to become a Trustee?
My main reasons for joining The Benjamin Foundation as a Trustee revolve around my enormous respect for the work done by the charity for young people who have a challenging life for whatever reason. My service on the adoption panel means that I read about many young children every month and feel that the early years work could prove pivotal in improving outcomes for young children. My job has given me a passion for supporting the children in Norfolk that need help and I hope to be able to continue this as a Trustee.
Tell us a bit about yourself
I am married with three children. My hobbies revolve around home, garden and dogs but my main passion is supporting the Welsh rugby team especially during the Six Nations tournament!
