  • Bernard Nawrat

    Bernard Nawrat was born and lived in South London. For 20 years he worked in the Social Services department and has good insight into services for vulnerable people and how this has changed over the years. As someone with a strong social conscience, he applied for trustee Age UK Lambeth in order that he can add his experience and skills to make a difference.
