A Methodist minister, Frances has served on the senior management team at Birmingham University and has been a governor of both the University of Derby and Oxford Brookes University.

With her husband, Frances cared for her profoundly disabled son for 45 years. Following his recent move into residential care, she is keen to offer her time and experience to the role of Trust Governor, drawing on personal and professional experience to “give something back to society” in recognition of the community-based support she has received from district nurses and other professionals over many years.

With experience of offering pastoral care in her role as a minister, Frances hopes to offer an “understanding ear” and a voice to represent the views of those receiving services provided by the Trust.
