Nick Goldup, director of partnerships at Whizz-Kidz, has been appointed as director of care improvement at the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA).
The MNDA is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland focused on MND care, research and campaigning.
It is a membership organisation with more than 9,000 members forming a powerful national and local network that provides information and support alongside fighting for improved services.
Goldup will continue to lead partnerships at Whizz-Kidz, which provides wheelchairs and mobility equipment for disabled children.
Whizz-Kidz says it works to keep costs of wheelchairs down. It has introduced smart buying processes and has sought to reduce the costs over time. It operates a product matrix – continuously reviewing, monitoring and improving the supply chain, so it can secure a good price.
Whizz-Kidz managed to raise £6.4M in 2014, more than 80% of this was from voluntary sources, including trusts, companies and individuals.
