From transport to counselling or financial help they offer a variety of help and support
Dave Ormrod’s qualifications and early career in computing focused mainly on design and project management in a large multinational, before taking up the I.T. Director role in a large city law firm. After the care and support that Dave’s wife, Lynne, received from the Sue Ryder nurses and Rainbow Room staff in her final weeks and days, Dave was inspired to join NCC as a trustee in early 2020, and took over as Chair in January 2021.
