Additionally I’m Director of Autism Services at Centre for ADHD & Autism Support in Eastcote and a Parent Governor at Pield Heath School.  I’ve been involved with Hillingdon Parent Carer Forum as a parent representative for around 5 years now and think they’ve done some great work in respect of ensuring the parent voice is heard in Hillingdon.
