Jodi Whitehouse

Founder & CEO

Jodi founded Caring Matters Now with the support of her family and friends in 1997, after being asked by Dr Atherton to support others affected by CMN at Great Ormond Street Hospital. Jodi has CMN herself and therefore understands the impact living with CMN can have on an individual.

Caring Matters Now has grown from strength to strength over the years and Jodi sees it as a real blessing and privilege to be a part of the charity. Jodi has met some amazing people who are involved in the Caring Matters Now charity and she says it is with thanks to her family, friends, CMN trustees, CMN support contacts and Great Ormond Street Hospital that the charity is where it is today.

Over the years Jodi has developed the charity and in 2012 she became the CEO of Caring Matters Now. As CEO Jodi is committed to overseeing the management of the charity, strategically developing the charity, seeking new opportunities to raise funds for CMN research and developing Caring Matters Now support internationally.
