Our Trustees

Welcome to our Board of Trustees, the people behind the scenes!

At People to Places, we are proud to have such an array of expertise on our board with each Trustee bringing a set of skills that is invaluable to People to Places and all of our lovely service users. Why don’t you come and get to know a little bit more about each of them, what they do at People to Places and maybe even a little bit about who they really are when they are not a Trustee at People to Places!

Chair of Trustees

Gill Godbold

When Gill retired from her role as Assistant Director of Education at RBWM, she was looking for a role in a charity where she could make good use of her skills and experience.

When Gill retired from her role as Assistant Director of Education at RBWM, she was looking for a role in a charity where she could make good use of her skills and experience. A friend introduced her to People to Places and she joined the then Management Committee in September 2008, became a Trustee in January 2009 and then became the chair of Trustees in March 2017. Although her career as a secondary school teacher and in local government was centred around children and young people, she found that much of her background was very relevant and useful as a Trustee at People to Places. In addition, the personal experience of having supported her elderly parents through some difficult times gave her valuable insight into the issues many of our members experience.
In her spare time, Gill enjoys sport, especially hockey, and outdoor activities. She is learning Spanish in a bid to keep her brain active and also enjoys reading and music.

Originally, as the name suggests, Scott is from Scotland but has lived in the area now for over 45 years.
Scott worked in electronics and more specifically semiconductors before starting his local home care agency, Right at Home in Maidenhead 8 years ago.
He is very proud that it is rated Outstanding by the CQC and hopes that some of the skills he has learnt in homecare in combating loneliness for clients with mobility challenges can be transferred to help People to Places.
Specifically he has skills in fundraising, compliance, marketing and training which he hopes can enable People to Places to continue to be strong now and in the future and be able to deliver services in the local community in the long term.
Scott in his spare time enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf, cycling and supporting Chelsea FC.
