Debbie Sorkin – Vice Chair of the Board and Chair of the Governance Committee

Debbie’s passion and enthusiasm for the Trust and for disabled people shines through everything she does.

We have so much to be thankful for with Debbie on our team, especially the recruitment campaign she led to successfully appoint our new Chair.

This was no small undertaking, agencies were engaged with, vetted and interviewed before appointment, and then candidates were long listed, shortlisted and interviewed.

In addition to being a Trustee, Debbie is not only Vice Chair of our Board but also chairs the Governance Committee who meet twice a year to scrutinise and assess our governance procedures to ensure we are compliant and adhering to best practice. She is also a member of our Development Committee.

Debbie is currently leading on our Trustee recruitment campaign, working closely with the HR Department to recruit four new Trustees who will replace those sadly leaving at the end of their tenure next year. One of those who will be leaving will be Debbie, who will be a great loss to the Trust.

We have been incredibly fortunate to have received Debbie’s support for the past 8 years, and will make the most of her last year with us.
