Committed to making a difference

Meet the Board

Our Board of Trustees know how important it is that Real Life Options is well-led by its Leadership Team. They are committed to ensuring that decision making and forward planning is in the best interests of the organisation and the people we support. See below for a snapshot of why they offer their time as a Trustee and what they bring to the role.

“Being involved with an organisation where staff at all levels are dedicated to providing a real choice, a real voice and making a real difference to the lives of the people we support and the people around them, is reason enough for giving the time I do to support our organisation.

As an experienced Executive, Non-Executive Director and Trustee, the vast proportion of my working life was spent in commercial organisations leading and creating an environment for people to achieve their potential. Our founder, David Wandless, was very astute in naming the organisation as he did – Real Life Options. It is a privilege and an honour to be a Trustee and Chair.”

“I was thrilled when the opportunity arose to join the organisation’s Board of Trustees. With almost two decades working in the health and social care sector across different roles and with varying responsibilities, I can share these experiences to support the Leadership and staff teams. I had wanted to support a charity for some time but in a different way to just giving money. It is a real privilege and an honour to serve as a Trustee for Real Life Options.”

“I was delighted to join the Board of Real Life Options in 2016 as a Trustee and was impressed by what the organisation had set out to achieve.  Meeting some of the staff and the people we support has been a privilege.

I used to be a family doctor in the east of Scotland and am currently the Medical Director of an organisation that looks after healthcare professionals around the world.  Having worked in the health and social care field for many years, I know how important it is that everyone is treated as an individual and is given the opportunity to get the most out of their lives.”

“Real Life Options is a forward thinking organisation with a ‘can-do’ approach that puts people at the heart of its business.  The work it does and the way it operates sits well with my personal values and beliefs. I believe that my military background and years in Education have equipped me with the skill sets to contribute as a Trustee towards the organisation’s ongoing development and growth.”
