William joined the Board of Trustees in 2019. He qualified as a lawyer in 1994, is a member of the Law Society and has spent his legal career in private practice and in the financial services industry. William has been closely involved in the Charity sector both at work and in his spare time, and has experienced ﬁrst-hand the impact and importance of being a carer.
“I am delighted to have been appointed as a Trustee of Dementia Carers Count at the outset of this exciting phase of its development. Following seven years at a leading law firm, I moved to a private equity firm as Head of Legal and chairman of their Charity Committee, where I worked with and supported local charities in Southwark. That experience helped me to see where I could make a difference in a practical and concrete manner, and I hope that this will be of value to DCC going forwards in delivering on its goals and ambitions. On a personal level, my mother had a stroke and was incapacitated for 15 years. My father had sole responsibility for looking after her throughout that period, and this has given me first-hand experience of the incredible effort, impact and stress involved for a sole carer of a person with a disability.”
