I’m Pat Dixon, & I have been a member of the children first team for 37 years.During this time I have served on the management committee, and have held the positions of chairman and treasurer, and am now the vice chair. I worked for the Derby city council for 28 years, working in various children’s centres with special needs. I was a family support worker for 32 years at children first, a role I thoroughly enjoyed.

In 2015 I was invited to attend the unsung hero awards for the East Midlands, sponsored by the Lloyds bank Foundation and was awarded £1000 for the charity. I was also invited to attend the Royal garden party at Buckingham Palace.
I am a mother of 2 sons and have 4 lovely grandchildren.
