Today, I-AM Celebrating Autism in Greater Manchester is delighted to announce that that it has appointed Helen Boden as its new CEO.
Helen has over 25 years in the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities sector. During this time, she has worked across all areas of society with both children and adults who are neurodiverse. Most recently Helen was CEO of the British Dyslexia Association.
Helen explains, “I am absolutely delighted to be joining I-AM, an organisation with over 50 years of experience supporting autistic individuals and their families. Although these are very challenging times, the staff and trustees are dedicated to the continued provision of an invaluable service for those involved with the autistic community in the Greater Manchester area. I am looking forward to working with the team to support it in its mission to be the main developer and provider of support services for people with autism in the region, and to be known as an exemplar and first point of contact in this area.”
Claire Randerson, Vice-Chair of the Charity adds, “The trustees are excited that Helen will be joining the team at I-AM and supporting us in our vital work. Helen brings a wealth of experience that will help us address the needs of our Members and their families, particularly at a time when many are feeling isolated and vulnerable.”
