John Welham

I am Vice-Chair of Leeds Older People’s Forum and sit on the UK Advisory Forum for Ageing. I have well developed inter-personal, networking and communication skills, and have an inside knowledge of how central government operates, maintaining useful key contacts at senior level in DWP and some other Government departments. I was invited to be a Trustee of Care & Repair in view of my background, and believe that this places me in a strong position to be an advocate for the role of Care & Repair in the health, housing and social care agenda, both locally and at a national level.
