Leavers and joiners on our Trustee Board
Trustees play a vital role in running the service at Citizens Advice Westminster, providing a range of invaluable expertise and experience to support senior management.
We are sorry to say goodbye to five trustees this year:
- Alan Gorringe has been on the Board since 2008 and served as Chair for nine years and, more recently, as Treasurer since stepping down as Chair in 2017.
- Stephen Grave has been a Trustee since 2009 and chaired our HR Committee.
- Nina Fletcher, who chaired our Service Delivery Committee, joined the Board in 2017
- Janine Edgerton-Avin joined us in June 2019 and sat on our Service Delivery Committee
- Joseph Hill joined in December 2019 and was a member of our Fundraising Committee
We thank them for their support and wish them well in the future.

Who we are looking for…
Good governance is a crucial ingredient of effective, impactful organisations, and that includes boards whose trustees have different backgrounds and experiences.
As part of our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion, we want to strengthen our board to better reflect the diversity of our community. We will do this by seeking to elect trustees who bring different backgrounds, perspectives and lived experience, as well as a range of skills.
We are particularly interested in individuals with experience of volunteering, leadership and management, and individuals from marginalised communities, who are currently underrepresented on our board.
Is this you, or do you know someone who fits our criteria?
