Lynne Dobney, Chair of Trustees, said of the changes ‘Lapwing’s mission is to create and deliver personalised, sustainable, community-based education for marginalised young people.

‘This new Management Team will seek out and develop new funding opportunities to enable Lapwing to continue supporting the many students whose education is adversely affected by ill-health, disability or circumstance.  With her experience and passion Sophy is ideally placed to carry this vision forward.’
