Trustees

The Charities Commission state that

“Trustees have overall control of a charity and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do. Trustees are the people who lead the charity and decide how it is run. Being a Trustee means making decisions that will impact on people’s lives. Depending on what the charity does, trustees can make a difference to their local community or to society as a whole. Trustees use their skills and experience to support their charities, helping them achieve their aims”.

Kathy Morris

I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist, and I have worked with children and families for many years. I worked in the NHS until 2013, mainly at the Phoenix Centre in Bromley, but I also worked for 7 years at the Bethlem Hospital on the children’s inpatient ward. I joined Bromley Y in 2013, and have loved being part of the team there. I have a long standing special interest in autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders, as well as in service development and training. I hope that my skills and experience will continue to be useful to the organisation and I look forward very much to seeing the service continue to help children and young people in Bromley.
