Meet the new Head of the Children’s Foundation, Tony!

I am excited to begin my new journey leading The Children’s Foundation.

In such a short time, I’ve been truly inspired by the energy, passion and commitment of the TCF Team that I have inherited and the range of the Foundation’s delivery that I have witnessed including our ground breaking BaMM Mental Health Workshops, Therapeutic Horticultural Project and Clown Doctor Programme. We’ve also granted in excess of £5,000 to local community projects in Regional Grants and received valued donations from local fundraisers.

To cap off my third week, we hosted a highly successful Bowling Night and fundraiser for our corporate supporters giving the team and myself the opportunity to hear the views of North East businesses on our work and consider ways that we can work together in the future.

Fantastically, the last two days have been spent with some truly inspirational, like-minded colleagues and facilitators on the North East Enterprise Agency Ltd’s ‘Boost Your Business’ accelerator programme, which has truly challenged my thinking and offered quality time for reflection on my journey so far.

Here’s to the future and a new direction for the Children’s Foundation as we continue to evolve to meet the health and wellbeing needs of children in our region. Watch this space..
