Governance Executive Committee Members
We have three individuals on the the Executive Committee for the Forum they are all Members here are their introductions:
Dawn Whiting Agency: Splash
I have been Splash Programme coordinator since Apr 15. Prior to that I managed the Salamander project for WFRS and prior to that I worked in Adult Social Care at Wiltshire Coucil. Working in a field that has such positive impacts on young people and their families is very satisfying and enjoyable. Working with a diverse group of clients, partners and colleagues I continue to learn new things everyday and can pass my experiences on to others to continue supporting and helping those that need it the most.
I took up the role of Executive in November 2015. I understand and appreciate the amount of work undertaken by committees and wanted to help support that.
Being involved with the forum is a fantastic opportunity to meet fellow organisations and build relationships and partnerships in order to meet our clients needs across the board. I really value the forum as a platform to meet others, gather new info and also have a voice in the future of the services we provide.
I work Monday-Thursday 9:30-3:00, Friday 9:00-11:30

Vanessa Bedford Agency: Alabaré Christian Care & Support
I have been working for 23 years with children and families in the voluntary and statutory sector. When the vacancy came up in December 2015, I joined the executive. I believe that as a voluntary sector we have a lot to offer families, children & young people. The Forum offers the best networking opportunity
I work Monday-Friday 9:00-5:00

Liz James Agency: Barnardo's
I am a qualified social worker with 25 years experience in the statutory sector and 15 years as a manager in the children’s voluntary sector.
I've only just started on the Executive Committee! It's a great opportunity to play a strategic role in the development of the voluntary sector within Wiltshire, and great opportunity to network and develop creative solutions to a range of issues in these challenging times!
I work mainly Monday-Friday 9:00-5:00 but some flexibility!
