Chair of Trustees
Marilyn has spent most of her professional life teaching students with additional needs. For 13 years she was the SENCo at Welshpool High School where she also taught psychology to the 6th form. When she ‘retired’ Marilyn worked as a Family Engagement Co-ordinator alongside families who needed support in accessing local services and helping vulnerable students settle into school and enjoy their schooldays. She also worked with colleagues facilitating support groups for parents with children of all ages and now works with victims of abuse. Her experience of working with families has made her realise just how important the role of The Windfall Centre’s therapists is in supporting vulnerable children and young people.
