Donna Johnson - Assistant Secretary
I am married with one child. I worked at Electric Lamp Manufacturers for 18 years. Then due to my sons disability it became necessary for me to stay at home and be my son’s full time carer.I have been on the Board of Newcastle Temporary Care for a number of years. I was also president of Lakeside Special School’s P & C. During this time we successfully lobbied the government to avoid the planned closure of our school.When I was approached to be on the Board of the Autism-Friendly House Association, I eagerly accepted as I feel there is a real need for a purpose built home for families with a child or adult with complex needs to holiday together and relax and be secure. I have never had a holiday with my son and wish there was a holiday house available that would specifically meet our needs.
