Disability Action Yorkshire has appointed employment solicitor Mike Patterson of Harrogate law firm Berwins to its board of trustees.
The charity and social enterprise, which was named this year’s Social Enterprise of the Year, also recently had its work recognised by the Duke of York’s Community Initiative award scheme.
Jackie Snape, CEO of Disability Action Yorkshire, said:
We are delighted to have Mike join us as a trustee, his background and skills will be of great value to us and will complement the existing trustee board well.
It is a very exciting time for the charity and we look forward to having Mike as part of the team driving our development forward
Mike said he was proud to support one of the region’s most prominent and well-respected charities.
Disability Action Yorkshire is a fantastic organisation that has built a reputation for excellence and carries out incredible work in and around Harrogate and across Yorkshire.
I look forward to sharing my specialist expertise in employment law and working with my fellow trustees to help in the charity’s future growth and success.
