Fiona Spargo-Mabbs was a manager in adult education, including Family Learning, and family literacy, for her local authority when her son Dan died. She is now considered one of the leading experts in drugs education in the UK, and her influence is growing steadily. She, and the Daniel Spargo-Mabbs Foundation, are involved in an ever-increasing number of strategic projects nationally, and she has appeared in the media many times over the years. Fiona has led on the development and management of the work of the Foundation, from delivery to students and co-ordination with schools, to networking and strategy, and chaired the Board of Trustees until April 2016. Her passionate commitment to do all she can to prevent what happened to her son, or any other harm from drugs happening to anyone else, drives everything she does within the Foundation.
