We are delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Ted Melhuish, OBE as our Chairman at last week's AGM.
Ted is already a Trustee and now replaces Elizabeth Filkin, CBE, who has been our Acting chair for the last year. A big thank you to Elizabeth for your support in this time.
Ted's influence at Early Years policy-making level both in the UK and overseas, in addition to his expertise in ensuring that the evidence FYT produces is solidly based and reputable, make him an ideal choice for this role.
The Foundation Years Trust are delighted to have received donations from both Masonic Charitable Trust and the Johnson Foundation for our work in Wirral.
We would like to extend huge thanks to the Trust for their support, which will help us continue to support our wonderful families!
Established by Birkenhead’s Peter Johnson, the Johnson Foundation works to promote education, health and the relief of poverty in Merseyside. The funding will help to support one of our Little Explorer groups in the coming year. We are looking forward to working closely with Kate & Lorraine from the Johnson Foundation team!
