Meet the Board of Trustees!
The whole Kidz Kidz work is expertly supported and guided by a BOARD OF TRUSTEES, all of whom have relevant skills, especially in the area of children’s and youth work.

- David Etherton (Chair)
- Pauline Ransom
- Connor Pope
- Ron White
Chair of Trustees
Pauline is a Trustee and brings a wide range of skills and knowledge to Kidz Klub and its governance.
Connor has been onboard for many years. His total involvement and commitment to the charity and knowing Kidz Klub inside out, brings a real day-to-day insight to the board of trustees.
Connor is a well respected team member at most of our projects and is a valued member of the Trustees.
Ron is a Trustee and brings a wide range of skills and knowledge to Kidz Klub. Ron is a retired GP, is married to Michele, and they have 4 daughters.
Jude has worked with children and families for the past 15 years as a coach, Special Educational Needs Coordinator, and pastor. She is also a property developer and a mum of 3.
As staff, we have already been on the receiving end of Jude’s excellent insights and skills, and we know that this charity will really benefit from her involvement.
In addition to our paid staff and Trustees, we have a team of about 50 volunteers across the city.
If YOU think you’ve got a skill that would be of a benefit to us, or just want to get involved – get in touch! We’d love to hear from you!
