Our Team

“Dear SNAP Team, I want to thank you for the way you welcomed us. It was so good to see all of your smiles and dedication. You made my heart feel warm and with all of your kind and wise words, I felt safe.”

The family services, business and fundraising responsibilities of the charity are delivered by our dedicated team of staff and volunteers, overseen by our board of Trustees.


SNAP is governed by an Executive Board of 11 Trustees, which has a balanced mix of parents of children with disabilities and other members of the community, with experience in finance, health, law and education.
