Driving Mobility, the charity which accredits a network of driving assessment centres nationwide, has appointed Annie Wallace-Stanley and Sean Lawrence to its board.
During Driving Mobility’s recent national conference and AGM, Annie, Driving Advisor, Cornwall Mobility (left) and Sean, CEO, Hertfordshire Action on Disability, were voted in following a ballot of centre managers.
Sean commented: ” I am extremely pleased and proud to have been nominated to the DM Board and I would like to thank everyone who voted for me. My first task was thrust on me very quickly, when I was asked to chair the afternoon session at the conference – ‘straight in at the deep end’! I am looking forward to becoming more involved with the NE London project, having joined the Steering Group to support Christine Parr, who is heading up this project. I am excited about the prospect of developing my communication and teamwork skills, and broadening my knowledge and understanding of the mobility sector and hope to positively influence outcomes for Driving Mobility, it’s Centres and Clients.”
On receipt of the ballot result Annie added: “I was prompted to request nomination to the board because I am passionate about ways to support clients to keep them driving safely for longer. To promote collaboration and encourage engagement with the DVSA, our local GPs, Memory Clinics, OT networks, rehabilitation programmes, ADIs and other relevant individuals/organisations to provide a more consistent nationwide service that can support our clients. I understand the need to move forward with the ever-changing environment in which we live and the varied community of clients that we serve and hope that I can contribute to the future development of Driving Mobility.”
