Jean’s commitment and contribution is difficult to measure but has been invaluable in creating opportunities for young and newly disabled people to participate in sport. Jean worked for the charity as its Sports Administrator, Interim Chief Executive and since retirement as chair of the Sports Management Committee.
Jean has made an incredible contribution to the development of wheelchair sport and is hugely respected by everyone within the organisation and in the wider disability sports world at national and international level.
Jean was involved with the International Paralympic Committee and is a recipient of the prestigious Paralympic Order for her services to Paralympic sport. Her knowledge and experience is invaluable to the Board.
