Meet Trustee Bob

I have been a Trustee with West Sussex Mind since 2008 (formerly Worthing and Arun Mind). I have a strong commitment to support the development of good quality services for people with mental health issues. I am a very keen user of social media in keeping people informed about mental health related issues.

I am currently a Worthing Borough and West Sussex County Councillor. I was Mayor of Worthing in 2013/14 and used my Mayoral year to raise awareness around mental health in Worthing, with West Sussex Mind being one of my chosen charities. I and was also co-founder of Worthing mental health awareness week which takes place in October each year to coincide with World Mental Health Day.

As well as being a councillor I am also Town Crier for Worthing, a role which brings me into contact with many local people and public figures, enabling me to further raise awareness around Mind’s work.
