It is with great sadness that we have to report that Sarah passed away in January 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer.


Sarah founded Getting on Board, with a strong belief that supporting professionals to become trustees would be win-win-win for them, their employers and the charity concerned.


She used her enthusiasm, her wide network as a senior HR professional and her incredible passion to recruit some of the largest companies in the UK to work with Getting on Board to support their employees to join charity boards. Many of these companies are still with us nearly 15 years later.


Sarah was a serial trustee and governor herself so spoke from personal experience about the benefits of board-level volunteering. Her legacy lives on in Getting on Board's work.
