After 25 years as a Governor/Trustee and 13 years as Chair of Treloar Trust, Bruce Powell will be standing down on 1 September 2015. In keeping with its long term mission in support of disability, over this time Treloar’s has continued to provide first class education and care for young people with physical disabilities. In recent years the strategic plan to co-locate the School, College and Trust on to one site at Holybou...rne has been completed successfully. The School and College are officially rated as ‘Good’ across all areas of education and residential care and Trust fundraising continues to provide important additional resources to support the young people in its care.

Following a rigorous recruitment campaign, the Trustees are delighted to confirm that Alistair Mackintosh has accepted the offer to become the new Chair of Trustees. Alistair will work alongside Bruce and the other Trustees until taking up the reins in September 2015.

Alistair comes from a private equity background with over 25 years experience, most recently with Actis, a specialist emerging market investment business. Living near Treloar’s in Dippenhall, Farnham, Alistair and his family have been keen supporters of Treloar’s over a number of years. Alistair has experience of being part of a school’s governing body through his governorship of St George’s School in Ascot.

The Trustees are delighted that a successor with such relevant experience and background, combined with a passion for Treloar’s, has agreed to become the new Chair, and thank Bruce for his valuable and steadfast leadership over a period of much change and development.
