We are pleased to announce that Neil Yeomans has become our new Chair of Trustees and would like to thank Lesley Buckland for all her hard work and commitment over the last 4 years.  Lesley has passed over the reins to Neil who has recently retired having spent over 30 years in audit and accounting.

Neil brings us his experience and knowledge from working for one of the largest global professional services firms, of which he was a partner for the last 20 years.  Neil has traveled extensively and worked in Australia for 2 years and Poland for 3 years.  He is a qualified chartered accountant and as well as skills in financial management and control, he has experience in project management, risk management and governance.

Neil is a trustee of 2 multi-academy trusts, as well as being governor of a primary school.  He works with a number of charitable and voluntary organisations in the fields of education and care for those with disabilities.  He is also a mentor for a number of start-up businesses and university students looking to enter in to the world of work.

Neil said 'I chose to be a trustee of Tapestry because I believe that people deserve to receive a personalised service which helps them keep their independence and live in their own communities for longer'.

With Neil's help and guidance we hope that Tapestry will continue to grow and support older people in Havering to live healthy and connected lives.  Tapestry is in it's 70th year and we hope we will continue to respond to social care needs within our community and raise the profile of the people working in social care.

During our 70th year we want to build a community hub at HOPWA House in Inskip Drive with facilities and innovative technology that everyone can enjoy regardless of age or ability.
