Sue Upton, Trustee
Sue joined the Dementia Board of Trustees in September 2016. Currently the Director of Corporate Services for a local charity, she has worked in the not for profit sector for 18 years, including seven years as a Director of Fundraising. Sue has a wide range of experience in the charity sector particularly in fundraising, governance and strategic and operational management.
In 2015, Sue was involved in establishing the fundraising strategy for the Dementia Adventure Trust and was truly inspired by the vision and direction of the charity. With a close family member living with dementia and a strong belief that dementia should not be a barrier to a good quality of life, she discovered a passion for the work of Dementia Adventure and the joy that the outdoors can bring to a person’s life.
