Dr Bud Simpkin, CEO, Young Suffolk


“Steve Allman possesses a rare combination of talent in being a very able strategic thinker and an excellent communicator. As Chief Executive of children and young people’s VCS infrastructure charity Young Suffolk, I worked closely with Steve for a number of years.

In addition to his very valuable counsel as a trustee and Vice-Chair of Young Suffolk, Steve took a leading role in chairing the Young Suffolk Children and Young People’s Forum and in this capacity he also chaired a number of County–Wide Children’s Workforce Development Council events.

Steve is a first class networker and his very warm personality and astute mind enables him to have both influence and impact on a wide range of agendas. Although his speciality has been in the disability and inclusion field it is clear that his skills are effective well beyond this arena.”
