Our Executive Team

Hannah Bodek

Hannah joined the Executive team in 2018 as our Financial Director. She is a dynamic and driven Chartered Accountant.  She has years of expertise in not-for-profit organisations, both as an auditor at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and with 10 years’ experience working at senior management level at a national charity after that. Away from Aspens she is also a Trustee and has previously held the role of Company Secretary so brings with her knowledge and experience of charity governance and compliance above and beyond the finances. Being born and bred in the area and having visited the Cornford Lane site for years before joining the organisation, she feels closer to our cause and passionate about the work we do.

Robert Shanahan

Since training to become a registered nurse for people with learning disabilities, I have spent over 30 years working in health and social care, across the UK, providing support to people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health throughout that time, in a range of organisations including charities, local authorities, NHS and private companies.

I am passionate that all staff can make a positive impact on a person’s life and believe we all have a responsibility to achieve this each day

Away from my day to day job, I have the pleasure of being the dad to Emily who has Asperger’s so have spent many an hour supporting her to choose her own staff, married to Lynn, who is also a nurse and my younger daughter Alice is a children’s nurse, following in her parents’ footsteps
