I am a mother of two and an active part of our local community.  I work for a global IT organisation with responsibility for driving collaboration across international borders.  I appreciate diversity of opinion and have a natural interest in behavioural and physical science.  I enjoy working in a team, problem solving and gaining a new perspective.  I love being outside and I make time for fun.

Hobbies and Interests:  Every type of water sport and curling up with a good book.

Favorite Food: Pizza

Favourite Film: Too hard to say – Shawshank Redemption, Sound of Music and Parent Trap rank among the top 3.

What do you love about working at CASPA?  The people.  The diversity.  The acceptance for being yourself.  Being part of a community.  The same reasons that our members are part of CASPA.  We’ve found our home.

James Cleverley

Trustee

I’m Clev,

I’ve been around CASPA for a long time now. First helping out at clubs and residential and then running newniors in Downham.

I am currently an Assistant Principal at a special needs school in Bromley and have worked with autistic, SEND children and young people for over a decade.

Becoming a Trustee meant staying in touch with an organisation that I love and that I’ve seen do so much vital and valuable work in our local community for people who deserve opportunities to thrive.

Helen Smith

I work for a charity called Unity Works as Employment Service Manager. I am passionate champion and advocate for people with a learning disability and autistic people in the workplace. I have worked in the voluntary sector for over 30 years overseeing supported employment, employer engagement , supported internships and social enterprises. I am committed to bridging the disproportionately large employment gap people with a disability. 

Hobbies and Interests: Dog walks, spending time with the family and going on holiday.
