The Garwood Foundation
Welcoming Dr Ross White as our new CEO
Dr Ross White has been appointed as the new CEO. Following an early career as a neutron physicist in Grenoble, France, Ross returned to the UK and completed an MBA at Nottingham University before making the switch into the non-profit sector, mainly in healthcare management. Most recently this has been in the field of neuro disability. Commenting on his first week at The Garwood Foundation, Dr White said: “our specialist Rutherford School, our care home and the day centre at Bramley Hill together provide a wide range of excellent services. With many of our service users and students having severe disability and complex needs, I look forward to ensuring that The Garwood Foundation builds on its first seventy years and continues to provide the best possible environment for their education, care and well-being.”
The objectives of the charity are to promote the care, welfare, interest, treatment and advancement of education of adults and children having cerebral palsy and other profound, multiple, acquired or other disabilities, particularly those living in the London Boroughs of Croydon, Sutton and Bromley.
