Adam Youatt was elected as a trustee in 2012 and also sits on the Finance Sub-Committee. Adam is a solicitor and works in the local office of national law firm Gateley Plc where he is head of the Nottingham real estate team.
Adam brings to the benefit of the board his general commercial skills as a solicitor as well as his particular expertise in property matters. Adam wanted to be involved in My Sight Notts because he is himself visually impaired having been diagnosed with Ushers Syndrome (Retinitis Pigmentosa) in his early 20s and registered blind in 2008.
Adam says “I naturally have some empathy with the issues that face visually impaired people and therefore the vital role that My Sight Notts can play through its services. I wanted to get involved so I could have the opportunity, in a very small way, to help My Sight Notts to continue to provide those services”.
