PAS Appoints New Chair of the Board of Trustees

PAS has appointed a new Chair of the Board of Trustees after current post-holder, Martine Lignon, made the decision to step down after 10 years in the role.

New Chair, Dominique Webb, who joined PAS as a Trustee in December 2019, will take up the role formally on the 19th October.

Dominique is currently Head of Programmes for GamCare, the leading provider of advice and support for anyone affected by gambling. Having begun her career in advice work with the Citizens’ Advice network, Dominique subsequently worked in gender policy for the Equality and Human Rights Commission. She spent eight years as a board member of Merseyside Probation Trust, and two years as Director of Operations at Women in Prison.  Dominique believes that providing accurate and independent information and support is vital in enabling people to exercise their rights, especially in the complex and restrictive prison environment. We wish her all the best in her new role.

We also thank Martine for her many years of service, and look forward to continuing to work alongside her as she resumes her work with PAS as a member of the Board of Trustees.
