We are very pleased to announce that Nick Allan has agreed to become Chair of Families for Children following David Howell’s departure in July. Nick was elected by his fellow Trustees on July 5th to become the Chair. He has previously been a Trustee with FFC for a number of years and took a break last year but continued to support us as an advisor. Nick worked in the finance industry for over thirty years in London, Asia and the USA. For the last twenty of those he specialised in Asian investment. His main business interest now is in Indian hotels. Nick lives in Devon and was happy to become a trustee of Families for Children, because he felt that it was providing the chance of a fulfilling life to children whose prospects without adoption would be very depressing indeed. He has been involved with the charity for over ten years and continues to be amazed by the dedication and love of the families who we support in their adoption journey.
