Judy Turner (Chair)

Judy discovered RFA whilst looking for help for a family member, so as an ex-service user, she was delighted to be invited to join the Board of Trustees in September 2011.
Judy has sound knowledge of autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) from both a personal perspective and from her work as a learning support worker in both primary and secondary schools, along with working experience of both learning and emotional behaviour difficulties in school children.
She has many and varied interests outside of work but is best known for making delicious cakes which are enjoyed by all at committee meetings.

Maggie Walker (Treasurer)

I am pleased to support the work of RFA as a Trustee. I have experience of support to a young man with learning disabilities and as a foster parent. My work experience has mainly been in voluntary organisations. For the 14 years before I retired in 2013 I was Chief Executive at Manchester Care & Repair, a charity which supports older people to live in their own homes. This gave me experience of charity management, including applying for and managing charity grants and local authority and NHS contracts.
