Lindsay is a father of a 21 year old autistic young man who has gained immeasurably from more than ten years of engagement with KIDs playground services in Islington. "I see contributing to the KIDS organisation as a trustee as making some small pay back for those wonderful services my son enjoys now around a youth club where Elliot learns how to be a young adult and enjoy it." Lindsay’s own background is as a regulatory and risk consultant in financial services. Mistakes in money are his speciality – Lindsay has seen plenty of those and has learnt enough to help others. With a place on the Board and the Finance & Audit Committee Lindsay uses these skills to bring ideas, energy and give challenge but also to communicate a "parents perspective" to the discussions. As a family we have been through the dark days families experience with disability and have been involved in various other organisations to win better rights, services and understanding for those battling disability.
