Janine Edwards, Head of Consultancy and Development at the FSI is a Trustee for Gordon Moody Association.
When did you become a trustee?
I became a trustee in 2012
What does Gordon Moody Association do?
Gordon Moody Association is a charity that provides help and support to addicted and compulsive gamblers. We provide a residential treatment service, and an outreach support programme to UK gamblers and online advice, information and support to gamblers outside the UK.
Why did you become a trustee?
There were a mix of motivations. At the FSI I support lots of organisations with their governance and strategic development and it was important for me to understand Trusteeship and good governance in practice, not just in theory. I also wanted to develop my skills and gain new experience to support my career development and taking on a Trustee role was a fantastic way to do this. Finally I also had a personal interest in the work of the charity which led me to being a Trustee specifically for Gordon Moody Association.
