Marie was appointed as a trustee in November 2014. She had a son with severe learning disabilities, who was a service user at Jubilee House from 14-24 years old; he moved to residential services, then into supported living.
Over the last few years she has been actively involved with health and social service across the county working as a carer representative. Marie attends the Welwyn and Hatfield Local Learning Disability Forum, where she meets adults with learning disabilities, some of which use Jubilee House services. She also attends the Hertfordshire Carers Learning Disability Forum where she meets family members as well as health and social care professionals
Marie has personal experience of issues that some families face and her aim is to help those who have a learning disability, to lead their life to the best of their ability.
