TME joins Helen Taylor Thompson Foundation

We are delighted to announce that as of 21st January 2019, TME has become a part of the Helen Taylor Thompson Foundation.
This group brings together different enterprises founded by Helen under one board of trustees who are committed to fulfilling her vision and securing her legacy. It gives the TME team access to additional support for important day to day functions such as finance, IT and administration which are carried out by our HTTF partner CAN. This in turn will allow the TME team to invest more time in developing the organisation both in terms of lesson distribution but also strategic partnerships and collaborations. We will keep our status as Registered Charity and as a Company Limited by Guarantee.

We are pleased to welcome our two new trustees; joining Helen are TME’s long-term Associate Clive Dove-Dixon, and Alistair Fraser who is a Chartered Accountant and CEO at the accountancy firm Mazars. Meanwhile Andrew Croft, who is the CEO of the group, is a former TME trustee himself so is familiar with our work and passionate about making it sustainable and successful.

We’d like to express our deepest thanks to our outgoing trustees, Stephen Clarke, Simon Mabley, Colleen Robison, Forbes Madziya, Olu Olasode and John Hacker, who have between them clocked up around 70 years of service to TME and seen the organisation grow from Helen’s original vision of educating people about the threat of HIV in their own language, to now impacting the lives of around 5 million people every year.
