Previous Chair: Alison Cook

We are sad to report the passing of Alison Cook in January. Alison was a stalwart supporter of Carers FIRST, served as a trustee from 2001 to 2011 and was Chair for the last five of those years. We were blessed to have Alison who put a great deal into her role as chair. This was all the more remarkable as she was a prominent local councillor including Leader of  Sevenoaks District Council, Chair of Tunbridge Wells Community Health Council, served on the European Council, Chair of Sevenoaks District Arts Council, governor of several local schools and was on the Board of Moat Housing Association. I learnt a lot from Alison particularly when it came to taking over the role of Chair from her.
