Born in Lancashire, David has spent his entire career working in the financial services industry. Married to his wife Dorothy for 48 years, they have lived in Marple since 1982. David now cares for Dorothy who was diagnosed with vascular dementia in 2016. He first became aware of Signpost through his local dementia support group and really appreciated, and made use of, the range of support services offered.

When Signpost advertised for new people to join their Board of Trustees, David thought that he would be able to really add value as a result of his financial skills and his hands on experience as a carer.
