The PATA Management Team

Board of Trustees

PATA (UK) is a registered charity and therefore has a voluntary Board of Trustees (or committee members) which is made up of:

  • Chair, Vice-chair, Treasurer and up to six other trustees.
  • Currently our Trustees are: Karen Heaton-Jones, Rebecca Flaxman, Amy Williams, Lauren Adler, Nicky Martin and Derek Jones.

Our Board of Trustees is drawn from people with a variety of skills and knowledge from all parts of Gloucestershire and we always welcome new members who are elected at our AGM in January. They work closely with core staff at the PATA centre, and also line manage senior staff.

PATA is a member of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) and a registered training provider with City & Guilds and CACHE for accredited qualifications

Together we are proud to be part of the leadership team at PATA. Here’s a little bit about who we are and what we do as we head up the growing PATA community.
