Rosh is the Chair of Keychange’s board of trustees. Like all the trustees, she applies her Christian faith to the oversight of the charity’s activities and resources in support of its aim to provide Christian care to vulnerable people. Rosh became a trustee when she worked in a supported housing project in Liverpool and readily agreed to join the Keychange board because she believed in the work passionately and felt her experience could be helpful.
Her strong desire as a trustee is to serve and through the work of Keychange to see lives change for the better; to be God’s hands and feet on this earth!
Rosh has considerable experience as Business Development Executive for Standards and Excellence at YMCA England with a passion for working with vulnerable people of all ages including the homeless, having experience of working in the sector. She has recently established RMQS an organisation helping businesses improve their quality and deliver change. Rosh also has a deep understanding of Charity law, operation and requirements.
Rosh is committed to praying for the work and seeing linkages formed with other agencies, for the benefit of the organisations and the people they serve.
Amongst her hobbies are horse riding, dog training and agility, theatre, walking, cycling and travel especially to Australia and Scotland!
Margaret has been a trustee since 2007, having been drawn to Keychange through her passion for social justice for all, regardless of age, gender and race.
Having left a professional career in London to bring up three wonderful children full-time, she subsequently trained in a variety of disciplines; as a massage therapist (working for the Royal Hospital for Neuro-Disability), in bookkeeping & IT, as well as helping to set up a new legal practice in London.
Margaret was able to use her wide variety of skills more recently working as administrator at the Keychange Alexander House care home in Wimbledon, as well as playing an active part in a major refurbishment there a few years ago. She is still an active volunteer and has inside knowledge of all Keychange locations having completed a sponsored walk across an epic 500+ mile route, linking all the projects to raise funds for the charity in 2011.

Charles has been a trustee since 1998, with a couple of years break due to other commitments. His family connection goes back to his grandmother who was an early committee member!
He is the senior partner of a central London law firm, and brings his many years of commercial knowledge and experience to the board meetings.
When not immersed in the world of work, Charles enjoys spending time with his family, keeping fit and active, playing flute and saxophone and doing DIY. He loves all things nautical and in May 2013, took a work sabbatical to sail 4,000 nautical miles West to East across the Atlantic in a 50ft yacht.

David became a trustee in early 2004, during an exercise in which Keychange was taking over a failing Residential Care Home.
His career was spent with Norwich Union (now Aviva), and he qualified as a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries in 1969. His later career was in finance, so is able to bring a lot of experience in working with other finance professionals, monitoring risk, coping with regulation and annual returns. David is the Honorary Treasurer of Keychange Charity.
David is also a trustee of a large independent Christian Residential and Sheltered Accommodation complex in Norfolk and therefore has significant professional experience in the work of caring for older people.
Married with 3 sons (one accountant, one farmer and one actuary in that order!), he enjoys seeing his 5 grandchildren when he can. David also spends his time as an active Lay Leader alongside his wife in their local Anglican Group of 15 village churches, is a school governor and is occasionally seen out on the farm when there are calls for help from his farming son!

She also has extensive experience as a volunteer for charities supporting the elderly, disabled and people in need. As a committed Christian Joan is particularly interested in exploring how Christian values are demonstrated in the workplace.
Joan lives in London and enjoys travelling, reading, working out at the gym and spending time with her family in (her native) Yorkshire.

Keychange Care Homes have featured in two of the parishes in which he has served and he is looking forward to being able to make a contribution as a Trustee.
