Wendy Darling was elected as our new chair at our AGM in November, having been co-opted onto the Board earlier in the year.  

Wendy says ‘I’m thrilled and privileged to have been elected as Chair of Bexley Mencap.  I know that I’ll be following in the footsteps of both Joan and John who have been so instrumental in getting the organisation where it is today.  I work in the third sector and I am a senior manager with a support organisation.  I have been involved professionally with people with learning disabilities for most of my working life.  That experience extends into my personal life, as I have a brother with a learning disability.  

I am really looking forward to working with the other Trustees, the staff and the volunteers to help steer Bexley Mencap through these difficult times ahead, and ensure we remain focussed on our purpose – supporting people with learning disabilities, their families and carers.’
