The Consortium’s governance has been strengthened by the Board’s appointment of two new trustees; Professor Chris Drinkwater and Dr Jan Myers. Both combine a strong track record in developing initiatives with the not for profit sector around health & wellbeing and social enterprise, as well as having academic careers.
Chris is leading the development and implementation of Well Newcastle Gateshead, our exciting initiative as the latest pathfinder of Well North, to improve the health of people in four sites across Gateshead and Newcastle by working with local communities to set up and connect with activities that help them create, connect and aspire.

Jan, who researched the current situation of our members and what they wanted from the Consortium to present to our AGM last November, works at Newcastle Business School, Northumbria University, where she is part of several key research and practice areas around public policy and public management, responsible business, and social economy and social enterprise.
