This week we welcome Anne-Elise Smithson to the Cerebral Palsy team as our Partnerships and Fundraising Manager.
Anne-Elise’s role involves establishing and maintaining relationships with corporate, philanthropic, community and government sectors, to build the foundation of a major income and support stream within the CP Society. 

A few words from Anne-Elise:  

Tēnā koutou katoa
My shared passion for health and community led me to join the not-for-profit sector seven years ago.
Before joining the team at the Cerebral Palsy Society, I was working as a professional fundraiser for children’s health charities, including the Starship Foundation and the Children’s Autism Foundation. I love winning resources for mahi that makes a real impact in people’s lives.
I am an advanced learner of Te reo Māori, aiming high and working towards fluency.
I’m happiest when lounging on the banks of the Seine, soaking in a Parisian sunset and practicing my French. But failing the ability to travel internationally, I’ll settle for quality time with my family and two gorgeous nieces, or taking a break from the city with my partner. 

Welcome to the team Anne-Elise. 

Stay safe, and stay well. 

Nga Mihi,  

Clare Williams 
Cerebral Palsy Society General Manager
