Hello! My name is Jan and I've been asked to chair DPCV. I am very willing to take on this role because I appreciate the great importance of our forum for you to share your concerns, frustrations and aspiration for the children and young people dear to you.
Together we can work for positive change to support their education, achieve their full potential and lead fulfilling, successful lives.
I'm a mum and have spent all my working life in teaching, mainly infants, and also in school management. I hope I'll be able to use my accumulated skills, experience and understanding and serve you to my best ability.
I will do my very best to help, support and grow DPCV. I know I have much to learn and to do that effectively, I look forward to meeting you, working with you and learning from you over the months ahead.
This is an interim role and I will hope to encourage, support and develop our new team of trustees as well have involve those who have kindly offered to be a 'helping hand' volunteering to support one-off events and admin tasks.
We are still looking for new trustees in the North of Devon to join our team - would you like to join us?
Contact me at any time on chair @dpcv.org.uk or call 07975 506069.
