Celebrating National Trustees Week 2021 – our latest Trustee, Hayleigh Isaac
National Trustee Week (1st – 5th November) is dedicated to showcasing those who go above and beyond to aid charities and organisations in their management, strategy, and future plans as trustees. Within a charity environment, trustees are responsible for ensuring that all decisions consider the needs of the beneficiaries first are foremost.
Our latest Trustee, Hayleigh Isaac, had her first involvement with the Paul Popham Fund when volunteering as a peer mentor in 2016. Hayleigh has a close relationship with our services having been a kidney patient since 1999, and that personal experience meant she had great insight in providing support for other patients.
This led to Hayleigh becoming a member of our team in 2019, taking on the role as Support Services Coordinator. This role involved managing and developing the peer support and counselling services, while also overseeing the day-to-day management of patient support services.
As a trustee, Hayleigh will now be responsible for managing and developing the Paul Popham Fund strategy, aiding with key decision-making processes and future plans for the charity.
Speaking on becoming a trustee, Hayleigh Isaac, said:
“I am thrilled to be a part of the charity’s trustee group having been involved with the charity for five years. Helping the charity expand its service reach and increasing support for kidney patients is an incredibly rewarding experience and something I’m glad to be a part of.”
Our CEO, Joanne Popham, said:
“Celebrating National Trustees Week is so important in order to highlight the great things that trustees are doing across the country. We cannot thank our trustees enough for the vital work they do behind the scenes, steering the charity in the right direction and helping us grow. We all appreciate everything you do and couldn’t ask for a better trustee group.”
