Y Farwnes Kay Andrews
In April we will welcome Baroness Elizabeth (Kay) Andrews OBE as our new Trustee and Chair of our Wales Committee.

Appointed by Prime Minister David Cameron, Baroness Andrews will bring a background in heritage, science and technology, and education to the 15-strong Board of Trustees which leads both HLF and NHMF.

Sir Peter Luff, Chair of HLF and NHMF, said: “This appointment is great news for HLF and NHMF, Baroness Andrews’ wealth of experience, particularly in the science and technology and education sectors, will be invaluable as we continue to make challenging decisions about the UK’s heritage.”

As well as helping to make funding decisions for heritage in Wales and across the UK, Baroness Andrews will play a key role in steering the policies and direction of the two Funds.

A graduate of Aberystwyth University, Baroness Kay Andrews was Chair of English Heritage from 2009 to 2013 and has held a number of positions in government. Along with previous roles as Fellow of the Science Policy Research Unit at Sussex University and Founder and Director of national charity Education Extra, she has written books and articles on the history and organisation of science and technology policy, poverty and social policy, and education. In 1998 she received an OBE for her work in education.
