Our Chairperson Jillian van Turnhout is on the shortlist for this year’s Charity Impact awards as one of five NGO leaders nominated for ‘Trustee of the Year’. As well as a judging panel, a win is secured by a public vote.
Jillian has worked and volunteered in other children’s and young peoples’ organisations and led the Children’s Rights Alliance for a decade. As a Senator, she championed causes such as the ban on smacking children, ending child poverty, promoting the interests of children in Direct Provision and the rights of disabled children and their families, to name a few. Jillian is always child-centred in her approach and is courageous in reminding others to do likewise. We can be very proud that she has been shortlisted for this award as our Chairperson. It takes 2 seconds to vote, so please vote now and ask everyone you know to vote too. Thank you.
