New Chair of Trustees, Jane Cook
We are pleased to announce that Nafsiyat’s new Chair of Trustees is Jane Cook. Jane has been a Nafsiyat Trustee since 2015 and has previously served as Chair.
Jane is a Registered General Nurse and Public Health Specialist (Health Visitor) who works at a strategic level focusing on transformational change that aims to meet the needs of individuals, families and communities. Jane has worked with excluded groups for the past 36 years and promotes person centred and holistic care that is equitable.
“The work of Nafsiyat is more crucial than ever before as society deals with the inequalities and grief that have been exposed by COVID-19 and Black Lives Matter. Through intercultural therapy, Nafsiyat is able to support individuals and organisations to address their grief, and through training can support organisations who want to address race equality.”
“I am proud, as Chair, to be working with such committed and experienced staff and trustees. It’s exciting times for Nafsiyat as we move to influence change within communities and organisations that will address inequity.”
Nafsiyat’s Trustee Board would like to thank previous Chair, Dr. William Obomanu, for his contributions to Nafsiyat during his time as a Trustee.
