From 2004 to January 2007 he was Chief Executive of Barnet Citizens’ Advice Bureau, and from 2007 to the present he has been Chief Executive of the Hillingdon Association of Voluntary Services.
Ted says: “I am sincerely looking forward to taking up the post with The Fellowhship. I am keen to meet the staff and volunteers who make up the team and make the organisation tick, to take on board their ideas and views so that together we can take the organisation forward.
I am also very keen to make contact with the wider membership, to listen to their concerns and issues so that we can develop The Fellowship to be even more vibrant, stronger, and relevant for the challenges ahead.
I will certainly do my best to balance the needs of the membership, organisation, staff and volunteers and I look forward to a long and rewarding future with The British Polio Fellowship”.
