Celebrating Trustees’ Week 2023

Celebrating Trustees' Week 2023

As Trustees’ Week 2023 commences, Success4All would like to begin by expressing our profound gratitude for the invaluable contributions and unwavering commitment of our exceptional Board of Trustees. Their collective wisdom, extensive expertise, and diverse perspectives enrich our mission to combat educational inequality and enhance social mobility for children and young people in the North East.

Without their unwavering support, our efforts would not be as impactful or as far-reaching.

Thank you, Caroline, Iqbal, Pastor John, Samantha, John, and Rosemary, for your contributions which have been instrumental in shaping Success4All.
