As a growing organisation, The Armitage Foundation has, until now, flourished under the supervision of three trustees: Co-founders Leanne Armitage and Daniel Huf (Chair of Trustees) and Veronica Martin.
At the end of 2019 we were thrilled to welcome three committed new trustees to join our team:
Mo Akindolie is a consultant in Ambulatory Paediatrics at King’s College Hospital in London and Clinical Director for Children and Young People with the Healthy London Partnership. Mo graduated from the University of Newcastly upon Tyne and has played a significant role in redesigning paediatric services to meet local needs. Mo is a keen advocate for equity in the medical profession and will help to champion the least privileged to reach their potential.
Georgina Wells is CEO at Wellsaw Professional Services and Deputy Head for Collective Leadership at the Cabinet Office. Georgina is an entrepreneur with more than 10 years’ experience in strategy and business development and stakeholder management in the public, private and third sectors. She has been a valuable mentor to Leanne and Daniel for the past two years and we are thrilled that she will continue to support The Armitage Foundation through its next growth phase.
Cerys Ledger is an experienced accountant and Deputy Director of Finance at St George’s University of London. Cerys’s experience monitoring performance and finances in the public centre will be invaluable in ensuring the sustainable growth of the organisation.
We are delighted that Cerys, Georgina and Mo have joined our team and are confident that their expertise will help us to grow sustainably as we look to expand our provision to improve outcomes for students from underrepresented backgrounds across the country.
