Jackie Jefferson, Co-chair

Working with Rathbone firstly as a trustee and then as co-chair since November 2018 has been a rewarding journey. My background is in Human Resources consultancy, particularly diversity, inclusion and equity. The first charity I worked for, was Action for Blind People. I quickly realised that many of the daily challenges disabled people faced came from social and physical barriers in a society that had overlooked their needs.

I believe that we all have a valid part to play in achieving positive social change. By working together we can help to improve our own lives and the lives of others. Rathbone does that in so many ways, making a real difference to the quality of the lives and communities they support.
