Chairman

Andrew Pickup is Chairman of Family Support and brings significant experience leading growth businesses in the health and social care sector. Having previously worked at director level with organisations including Clinovia, Carewatch, Optalis and National Fostering, he has an appreciation of the careful balance required in developing and delivering high quality services in a regulated environment, whilst simultaneously ensuring financial sustainability and value for money.

His experience having lead the health and social care organisation Optalis from the time of its spinout as an LATC from Wokingham Borough Council, is particularly relevant in helping steer the direction of Family Support to similar success.

Andrew is married with three children and is passionate about giving all children similar life chances and sees Family Support as an important vehicle to do this.
