Brian Walsh’s professional career encompassing 38 years includes working in social care, academic institutions, the charity sector and health.

Brian retired from his role as Executive Director of Social Care in 2015 but has continued to maintain his interest and support to social care and the charity sector.

Brian has previously chaired the board of Keyring (a national charity for people with learning disabilities) and recently stood down as Chair of Camphill Village Trust after six years.

Brian has a keen interest in the arts, films and digital media and will continue to Chair the board of QUAD, an independent arts/film/exhibition centre in Derby whilst he assumes the role of chair at AFG. He is keen to see how the two charities can work more closely together to promote the arts and use of digital technology to enhance further independence and choice for people who access AFG services.
