Current Trustees: Sinead Rollinson-Hayes (Chair) (Maternity Leave til Nov 2022). Hello. I’m Sinead and I'm the Chair of Sheffield Mind. I am also a member of the fundraising sub-committee. I am a Solicitor at Irwin Mitchell in Sheffield, specialising in medical negligence cases, predominantly representing families at inquests. In my spare time I enjoy travelling and spending time with my husband, family and friends. I enjoy supporting local charities and organisations as well as promoting social mobility in the legal sector. Christie Rossiter (Co Chair) Hi, I'm Christie. I am the current Co-Chair of the board, alongside Martin Loughna and also sit on our diversity subcommittee. Having spent nine years working in the voluntary sector, including three years with Sheffield Mind, I recently started working in tech for an organisation working to make the music industry a fairer place for artists. My passion for mental health alongside my established relationships in the sector meant that I was well placed to become a trustee in 2008, and later, Vice Chair of the board. I enjoy travel, kickboxing, and arts & culture, and have a penchant for live music. I also love gardening and can often be found volunteering for the wonderful women's community flower garden charity, Bloom. Raheel Khan (Treasurer) Hi I’m Raheel. I’m a Chartered Accountant and have had varied roles in finance from Tax and Financial Accounting to Strategic Finance. I have always wanted to work for an organisation that exists to benefit the public which is why most of my career has been in the public sector. First in the NHS with experience at both Sheffield Health & Social Care and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, and now in my current role at the Department for Education. As well as these roles, I have been a governor at a local primary school and have also lectured at a local College. In my spare time I have two children that keep me busy, but apart from that I enjoy biking and taking on DIY projects. I also have a passion for travelling and have many plans to travel around the UK following lockdown. Andy Cain Hello, I'm Andy Cain. I'm passionate about mental health and helping others. My passion for mental health comes from my own life journey and my own battles with Generalised Anxiety Disorder and Depression. I have previous experience of working in mental health from my work as a Civil Servant and have worked as a volunteer for several support networks within the Civil Service over the years. As well as being passionate about mental health, I'm passionate about engagement and empowerment. I'm honoured to have this opportunity to work with Sheffield Mind. Thanks for reading, Andy. Gill Holt Hello I'm Gill. I recently retired from a career working in town planning, economic development, and senior management roles in local government and, latterly, Leeds University. My interest in working for Sheffield Mind stems from a close relative who suffered from significant mental health issues over several years. Now that I no longer have to face the daily 72-mile round trip to Leeds, I have time for playing more tennis and have developed an interest in drawing and painting. I also have more time for watching sport, and, as originally a scouser, I'm a keen supporter of Liverpool FC, and also Andy Murray. Steve Jones Hello, I’m Steve Jones; almost retired after a long career in mental health in various posts as a social worker, trainer and manager, but I still do some training in mental health awareness for the Council and sit on Hospital Managers Panels to hear cases involving the Mental Health Act. I've no personal experience of serious mental health difficulties, but even after all these years I find mental health issues absorbing and long to see a better deal for those with mental health problems. I’ve been on the Board of Sheffield Mind for 11 years and was Treasurer for several years. I sit on the Finance Subcommittee. I’m a Londoner but I love Yorkshire and have no desire to return South. I fill my retirement with hobbies done badly, including playing keyboards in an old fogeys’ rock band and cello in an orchestra. I’ve also embarked on an Open University maths degree for some reason. My best retirement pleasure was walking coast to coast on the Hadrian’s Wall path. My three granddaughters are also a source of much entertainment. Martin Loughna (Co Chair) Hello, I'm Martin. My career history has predominantly been in the public sector. Previous roles centred around service development, commissioning, public engagement as well as being a lecturer in further education. Key achievements that I am particularly proud of are the co-writing of national DoH guidance for the establishment of PALS (Patient Advice Liaison Services) in the NHS and the implementation of a progressive approach to setting up a Local Involvement Network for a local authority (both initiatives served to represent patient and public interests in the NHS). Ten years ago, however, I had a bicycle accident in Cuba and it was during my recovery, I decided to retrain as a psychotherapist. This role has been a life changing experience and I feel privileged and passionate to play my part in the mental health community. It is this same perspective that I bring to my role on the Sheffield Mind Board. Joe Reid Hello, I'm Joe Reid. I've worked for NatWest in different roles for 17 years and the last 5 as a Director, responsible for providing lending to commercial and corporate customers in the North of England. I also manage a team of people providing training and coaching and focusing on their career development. I am the proud father of 3 children, Ethan (9), and Bella and Betsy (5) and enjoy spending my free time with them. I am also a big fan of all sports and like playing football, tennis, squash and badminton. I also enjoy reading and watching films covering a full range of genres.
