Kath Lindley is leaving Forum Central.
After nine years as the lead officer for Tenfold, Kath is moving on to pastures new. Kath joined the organisation, in 2009 when it was then called the Leeds Voluntary Sector Learning Disability Forum, or LVSLDF, for short!
Kath took the organisation through a re-branding exercise, creating a new website and building the membership base from 22 member organisations, to its current total of 106.
She has developed the wider network of Tenfold partners, working with people across all sectors, including the council, health, and businesses.
Kath has helped deliver some key events which have put learning disability issues on the map in the city, including the Council Chamber Take Over Days, which have helped to shape the last two Learning Disability Strategies, and of course, the fantastic Tenfold Awards.
She has also worked alongside colleagues within the Forum Central team, to ensure that the third sector has a strong strategic voice and influence in the transformation of health and care services across Leeds.
“It has been such a privilege to do this role, and to work with some amazing and passionate people, especially those with a learning disability, who have taught me so much”
“Learning Disability will always have my heart, so make sure you keep up the great work everyone!”
Kath leaves us to join a charity called Wakefield and District Health and Community Support, a grant giving organsiation based in Wakefield, but which issues grants to charities who support health and communities all across Yorkshire.
We wish her every success for the future.
