The Vision UK Children & Young People with a Vision Impairment (CYPVI) Committee is delighted to announce the appointment of Jenny Cook as the new Chair and John Milligan as the Vice-Chair of the committee.
Jenny, who is Director of Wishgranting at Make a Wish UK previously worked for Guide Dogs as Head of Strategy and Research and chaired the committee up until July 2017. Jenny was succeeded by Tracie Tappenden who was Chief Executive at VICTA. Tracie helped promote the committee’s role when the new Vision UK strategic panels were created.
John is Team Leader, Visually and Multi Sensory Impaired Children, Young People & Families for Norfolk County Council. His huge experience in specialist education should complement the experience Jenny now brings working outside the vision impairment sector.
