Professional Support for a Growing Charity
Dr. McMullen will be a valuable Trustee, as he will be able to bring a wealth of professional knowledge and experience to the Charity, which will support us in our future plans and setting out our goals to enhance the lives of people, families and communities across Calderdale.
Halifax Opportunities Trust has been operating since 2000 from its base in Halifax. Our projects span the length of Calderdale from Halifax to the suburbs such as Boothtown and Siddal and valley towns of Sowerby Bridge, Hebden Bridge and Todmorden but our home is very much centred in the Park Ward area.
Practically, our work involves helping people to find new or better jobs, to learn new skills, to start or grow businesses and to help raise their families. Its values drive the work it does in Employment , Learning, Wellbeing, Enterprise, Inclusive Integration and Children & Families.
Halifax Opportunities Trust’s CEO Alison Haskins comments:
“The Trust is delighted to welcome Dr John McMullen to the board. John brings a wealth of knowledge and experience with him, which will be of huge value to the charity and our ambitions to improve lives across Calderdale.”
Dr John McMullen adds:
“I’m looking forward to supporting Halifax Opportunities Trust in its work. At Spencer West we put a lot of emphasis on how we can give back our communities and our lawyers are encouraged to get involved with causes close to their hearts.”
