Message from the new Chair of Trustees – Beth Manning

January 2021

I am delighted to be appointed as the new Chair of Trustees for Springboard. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Louise Petersen for her dedication and leadership during her time as Chair – her expertise and generous nature will be missed, and I am aware that these are big boots to fill.

Springboard is an incredible organisation which holds a special place in my heart. The support and opportunities which are offered to young children and their families in North Somerset is second-to-none. As a parent of a little boy who attended Springboard and as a teacher who has worked in primary education for almost fifteen years, I know full well that it really does offer the best possible start for children with additional needs and disabilities.  The exceptional reputation Springboard has is due to the wisdom, passion and dedication of its staff and volunteers – they are the beating heart of this wonderful organisation.

I am excited about continuing to help champion and support Springboard in its next phase, and I am very much looking forward to meeting you all soon.

Beth Manning
