Liz brings a wealth of experience to the charity sector from over 30 years working with families and young children in both the public and private sector. Liz has always endeavoured to ensure military families were at the forefront of any new Government developments and introduced the Armed Forces Community Covenant to the local authority which duly embraced the scheme. Liz is married with two grown up daughters and four lovely grandchildren.
Liz is chair of The Healthy Child Boards covering Taunton and West Somerset. Liz is also a school governor at a local primary school with responsibilities for Early Years and Safeguarding.
Go Commando has recently developed a new children’s day nursery in partnership with a quality early years provider. The nursery is situated in Pen Elm, Taunton directly across from 40 Commando Royal Marines base. The provision caters for children and families of both armed force families and the wider community. Liz was and is heavily involved with this project.
One of Liz’s sons in law is a Royal Marine veteran and so for many reasons she has a strong commitment and passion to act as a trustee for Go Commando.
