Jan Flawn, Chair of Trustees, CBM UK on bringing expertise to transform the lives of people with disabilities.

Jan Flawn, CBE and Chair of Trustees, CBM UK“Since CBM UK was founded in 1996, UK supporters, medical & disability experts, staff and volunteers have all played a vital role in transforming the lives of the world’s forgotten people, bringing their skills, talents and experiences in a huge range of ways.

They, and you, are all part of CBM’s story.

As the Board of Trustees, our role is to give overall strategic direction and governance oversight to CBM UK. We are all volunteers and, crucially, each Board member brings different expertise, including in global health, international development, economics, law, finance, healthcare, business or management. With this wealth of knowledge, the Board supports and challenges the staff team to ensure our programmes are effective and make lasting change, that governments and mainstream agencies are supported to include people with disability in their work, and that we can raise funds appropriately and sustainably. All members of our Board are linked by one passion: to break the cycle for people with disabilities in the world’s poorest communities.

Thank you for being part of our work, and for journeying with us into the future.”
