Bianca Cotterill 

Finance Manager

Bianca has been a volunteer with Pinpoint for many years  involved with the Continence Action Group, Wheelchair Forum and Lifelong SEND Pathway. Her background is in finance, but she is passionate about many issues across health, education and social care because her 19 year old daughter has profound learning and physical disabilities. Having recently had direct experience of the transition into adult services, Bianca is keen to continue working with various groups and service providers to “raise the bar” where it’s needed.

Linda Green
Volunteer & Engagement Officer

For the past 15 years Linda has worked in the Third Sector researching, designing, delivering and managing services for young people and adults with learning disabilities. Her roles have given her insight into the needs and challenges around disability and allowed her to create services and resources that can alter perspectives, both for those who have a disability and the wider community. Her passion and drive for “normalisation” is for both those living with disability and their families.
Linda also happens to be mum to Jonnie Peacock Gold Medallist for Great Britain. As proud as she is of Jonnie’s achievements, she also remembers the pain and difficulty of the journey from when he contracted meningitis to London 2012 and the dramatic impact it had on the family.
