Today we had the absolute pleasure of meeting and give Mike Brace CBE, DL and his lovely wife Mo a tour of our centre and the opportunity meet our clients.
Havering Association for People with Disabilities decided to approach Mike to be a Patron for HAD as we knew he would be excellent ambassador’s for our organisation and an asset to our charity. We approached Mike and were overjoyed when he said yes.
Mike a former Paralympic skier, social worker and leader of disabled charities was Chief Executive of Vision 2020 UK and served as Chairman of the British Paralympic Association. Well deservedly he was awarded an OBE in 2005 and a CBE in 2009 for Services to Disabled Sport and was appointed as a Deputy Lieutenant of London in 2016.

We are excited about having Mike joining our organisation and look forward to working in partnership.
