Lucy joined Slide Away as a trustee in 2021 having worked as a Slide Away volunteer helping with workshops and memory days. She had been impressed by the difference they made helping young children and adolescents manage their grief.
Lucy has worked in recruitment, training and management for a large pharmaceutical company, and for a training consultancy specialising in communication skills and team building in the Pharma sector and with Doctors in the UK and Europe.
On a personal level, she is a school governor and as a result has an understanding of the need for and benefit of support for families experiencing bereavement.
Lucy and her husband have two grown up children, and, with her two dogs, enjoys walking, running and gardening.
Kerry Green joined the board of trustees in 2021. Through her previous experiences, she has developed a deep understanding of the impact of illness, and of loss and grief, and is committed to working within this field. She is highly aware of the huge impact that bereavement can have on a young person and the wider family. She understands the benefit of offering creative ways of supporting young people, giving them a safe space to talk and offering them the chance to be with others who have had similar experiences.
She worked as a Primary School teacher before retraining as a counsellor. She is now a BACP Accredited Humanistic Counsellor working both in a secondary school and as an oncology counsellor for the NHS. Before this, she volunteered as a counsellor at a hospice.
