Deborah Welham, BA (Hons) (Chairman) Deborah Welham became our first female Chair of Trustees in 2017. Expand Becoming a Trustee at Reedham Children's Trust has enabled me to continue helping children who are struggling in difficult family circumstances. I have been privileged to meet many of our young people, and to watch as a new and brighter future opens up for them Deborah's background is in the commercial world. Her early career was spent creating a leading communications consultancy, specialising in brand reputation management, for national and international organisations. After 15 successful years, the company was bought by a major global communications network, and it continues to thrive under their ownership. After the successful buy out of Deborah's company, she was able to pursue another of her major passions; working to help disadvantaged children fulfil their potential. After serving as a Governor at a local school, she joined an educational charity, leading their commercial arm. She is also a business mentor for several SME's.
