Our trustees come from a range of backgrounds and bring a wealth of knowledge to our board. What they have in common, is a desire to ensure Pepper's- A Safe Place continues to support the mental health of our communities.
Their roles include overseeing our centres, supporting our team of volunteers and staff, setting our strategic direction and monitoring our impact.

I am a retired Registered General Nurse and Midwife. I retired on Ill health grounds 10 years ago.
My hobbies include gardening, paper crafting and card making, Pilates and socialising with friends and family.
I have been volunteering at Peppers for over a year now and enjoy it very much supporting the local community. I believe very much in the ethos behind Peppers . I look forward to supporting peppers as a trustee.
I was asked to consider joining as a trustee due to my local knowledge of Melton, my previous experience of mental health, my volunteering with Melton Peppers and my background in health care.
