About Us Meet Our Trustees Ray Gibbins As Chair of Trustees, I'm instrumental in hearing and organising the various voices that embody Viewpoint. Through starting my own publishing business, I lend a helpful voice to the design and tone of Viewpoint. I'm delighted to be part of this charity, especially as my daughter's role as a clinical psychologist convinced me into volunteering within the mental health and learning difficulties field. Simon Taylor Having worked in accountancy since graduating from Liverpool University, I retired as Finance Director at CPUK in 2018, eventually joining as treasurer at Viewpoint in 2020. In addition to this role, I serve as a trustee and treasurer for both Welwyn Hatfield Community & Voluntary Service and Nyaka UK. I'm also a trustee director of the Cereal Partners UK Pension Fund. Ashley Risk My experience as a residential social landlord for HMO houses of multiple occupancy led me to being involved with health and safety, fire safety supervision, accounts and Performance Management. As well as being a trustee for Viewpoint, I'm a videographer and help write produce, direct and edit films. I'm also involved in community, commercial and art house projects. Meredith Griffiths As an ex-director of nursing and director of a healthcare communications company, I have a broad view of some of the challenges affecting our community. Living and working in Hertfordshire with a family with our own mental health problems and taking up the role of public governor over two terms for Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, it's my hope that these experiences will help me make a difference in Viewpoint.
