Kelly Wombwell

Co-Founder & Trustee

Bringing years of experience from her time in the hospitality business, Kelly is a warm and fun-loving lady who excels at putting our events and fundraisers together. Kelly also has a child with complex needs as well as ASD. Thirteen years ago there was no obvious support or interventions available to help parents.

Through many years of trial and error they were able to establish strategies to improve speech & development, challenging behaviour etc. This hard work has paid off and their son is a very confident young person doing well in school and has a very active social life.

Kelly is also part of the Gateshead Council Parent Forum which meets monthly to strengthen the parent’s voice when the council put together its policies.
