About Kat Porter
I started attending SNAPS in 2019 with my son, who has hemiplegia after having a stroke before birth. As a family, we really wanted to meet other families who we could share our experiences with and get support and advice from. We have seen our son gain much more confidence and he really enjoys every session. I am truly inspired by the work that SNAPS does and am thrilled to be a part of such a brilliant charity. Professionally, I have over 10 years experience working within the public sector and can bring all of the skills I have gained to fully support SNAPS and all of our wonderful families in my role as Administrator.
About Rich Porter
I joined SNAPS in 2020 after I started bringing my son, Joshua, to physiotherapy sessions at Penny Fields. I have over 7 years experience in both public and private sector working in communications and marketing. From building content on websites, managing multiple social media accounts across various platforms, to internal communications and more. I want to help SNAPS communicate the great work they are doing not only with the children but with the families who they offer support to. SNAPS is a fantastic charity and I am thrilled to be a part of their work.
