Elaine Mills
Chair of Trustees

Elaine is delighted to have been appointed Chair of Gaddum in April 2022. Some years ago, she chaired a Black-led mental health charity in Manchester, supporting the Board of Trustees to develop the organisation and recruit new volunteers.

Her experience volunteering within the charity has helped her develop an understanding of mental health, particularly in relation to the need for culturally appropriate, accessible services.

She is looking forward to supporting Gaddum to continue to grow and develop to deliver vital services to the people of Greater Manchester.
