Remark! Community Trustees meet regularly to discuss, decide and review our strategies and policies and receive reports and updates from the senior manager. Our trustees work for Remark! Community voluntarily to make sure we’re doing all we can achieve our objectives of improving access and equality for Deaf people.
Pembe Alp - Chair
Maria Goddard - Secretary
Maria was volunteering in the local community and came into contact with Deaf BSL users and wanted to communicate with them so started learning BSL. Maria became very involved with Remark community working in a lunch club with mature members as a volunteer.
Through her experience, teaching P.E, covering all ages, youth work and volunteering in the community over the years, she was able to offer an exercise and walking programme which is proving to be very successful, also creating such fun and satisfaction for both members and Maria.
From that, her interests spread to other projects and was asked to be a trustee of Remark Community because of her involvement in the charity. She continues to learn and to give her time and experience.
