Rosh is the Chair of Keychange’s board of trustees. Like all the trustees, she applies her Christian faith to the oversight of the charity’s activities and resources in support of its aim to provide Christian care to vulnerable people. Rosh became a trustee when she worked in a supported housing project in Liverpool and readily agreed to join the Keychange board because she believed in the work passionately and felt her experience could be helpful.

Her strong desire as a trustee is to serve and through the work of Keychange to see lives change for the better; to be God’s hands and feet on this earth!

Rosh has considerable experience as Business Development Executive for Standards and Excellence at YMCA England with a passion for working with vulnerable people of all ages including the homeless, having experience of working in the sector. She has recently established RMQS an organisation helping businesses improve their quality and deliver change. Rosh also has a deep understanding of Charity law, operation and requirements.

Rosh is committed to praying for the work and seeing linkages formed with other agencies, for the benefit of the organisations and the people they serve.

Amongst her hobbies are horse riding, dog training and agility, theatre, walking, cycling and travel especially to Australia and Scotland!
