Dame Clare Tickell, EIF chair of trustees, says:
“We are delighted to welcome Kelly, Reshard and Sally to the EIF board. Between them, they bring a formidable range of professional experience and subject expertise, alongside a firm grasp of the vital importance of early intervention. As EIF continues to grow and mature, having just marked its sixth birthday, it is great to be able to add new perspectives and skills to our team.”
Reshard Auladin, EIF trustee, says:
"I am very pleased to be joining the Early Intervention Foundation as a trustee. Over the years I have seen the positive impact of early intervention on the lives of children and young people, and now more than ever, its role is becoming critical in our society. I am looking forward to working with a dedicated team of people who are doing much to help young people fulfil their potential."
Kelly Beaver, EIF trustee, says:
"I’m delighted to take up the role of trustee with the Early Intervention Foundation. As someone who has worked in the ‘industry of evidence production’ throughout my career, I look forward to actively supporting EIF in its ever-important mission: to champion the effective and timely use of evidence in changing the system to better support early intervention and improve outcomes for children and young people."
Sally Burlington, EIF trustee, says:
"I am delighted to have been appointed as a trustee of the Early Intervention Foundation. It will enable me to support EIF’s work in promoting the most effective ways to transform the life chances of children and young people, bringing together my experience of local and central government policy, and my longstanding personal commitment to effective early intervention."
