Disability charity creates 'voice for beneficiaries'

Disability charity the Papworth Trust has created a new role to ensure its service users have a bigger say in how it is run.

Julia Clough, who has worked at the trust for eight years, has taken on the role of head of empowerment. Her job will be to act as a voice for the organisation’s 10,000 beneficiaries, ensuring that they are involved in choosing and scrutinising the trust’s employees.

Clough was previously community services manager and centre manager at the West Suffolk Disability Resource Centre in Bury St Edmunds.

Adrian Bagg, chief executive of the Papworth Trust, said: “As an organisation, we are committed to providing services that enable disabled people to maximise their independence and address the barriers they continue to face in society.”
