Rachel Trueman

Chief Executive Officer/Director

South Glos Parents and Carers is an organisation I am so proud to be part of. Bringing Parent Carers together to help and support each other and to try to make the journey easier for other families on their own journey is so powerful.  

I Co-founded SGPC (formerly known as Our Voice Matters) back in 2009 with a couple of other parents and we have grown from strength to strength. 

In 2013 I took on the role as CEO at SGPC in my day to day role and also sit on the board as a Director. 

My background was in Retail Management which involved managing teams , stock control , display and marketing and customer service . When I gave up work for childcare reasons I kept myself busy and enjoyed getting involved in various projects . I have been involved in volunteering for over 12 years now which ranged from running the PTA at my sons local school, being a school governor in 3 different schools, running the NAS South Glos Branch and for 6 years volunteered with South Glos Parents Carers. 

I welcomed the opportunity to be involved in SGPC to work with other parents and services to make a real difference for families in South Gloucestershire and this has continued and will always be a passion of mine.
