Married with one son, Genefer is now retired from a long career in Education (a substantial part as a Head Teacher). Now a member of Cheam Baptist Church, Genefer was brought up by a Baptist Minister father and spent many years in Northern Ireland where she grew her faith.

Genefer first became acquainted with PFS through Milward House, where her mother was a resident for many years.  She developed a love and understanding of elderly care through her experience with Milward House, and valued the Christian care that her mother received there. Her vision is to do all she can to support PFS in their aims to make the lives of older people, whether in residential care or in the community, richer and more fruitful.

As well as being a Trustee of PFS, Genefer also sits on the Independent Monitoring Board of High Down Prison in Banstead, Surrey.
