MEET THE TEAM



CHAIRMAN: DAVE TAWS


Hi I am David and as chair it is my job to make sure the minutes are read and everyone gets a say, which can sometimes be a bit of a challenge but I am a teacher by trade; so I’m passionate about learning and seeing others reach their potential.

I’m not one for standing on ceremony so… feel free to drop in for a chat and a coffee, we are always happy to see new faces and listen to their stories, see you at the next meeting.


ADVERTISING MANAGER: AIMEE WILSON

Hi! My name is Aimee, I’m 27, and I live in Northumberland.

I joined LEAPS in April 2017 as an Advertising Manager. I have run the mental health blog I’m NOT Disordered (www.imnotdisordered.co.uk) for five years. In building the blog to what it is today (over a quarter of a million readers!) I’ve learnt a lot about social media, advertising, publicity, marketing, and communications and I’m thoroughly enjoying my first job in that industry here at LEAPS.

The group is like a dysfunctional family and they really have been instrumental in my mental health recovery and career. I started this website in late 2017 and have designed business cards, posters, applied for funding, organised fundraising events, and set up the LEAPS Twitter account: www.twitter.co.uk/leapsonline

Craig is currently unemployed like many LEAPS members.
