André Howard

Trustee: The eldest of Isobel’s children and Wayne’s brother. Has plenty of ideas but like many no time to put them into action, thinks out of the box and likes to keep things simple and to the point. Has many interests such as technology, mountain bike riding, hiking, skiing, as well as cooking and collecting wine (when it isn’t being drank).Andre is the technologist for the charity and currently maintains the many aspects of the charity website as well as the original appeal fund site ( and provides technical assistance where needed. And like his Mum is 100% committed to the objectives and goals of the charity.


Tracy Goodwin

Trustee: Tracy is Wayne’s partner. They have been together for 23 years and have 3 sons – Jayd aged 22, Jordan aged 21, and Connor aged 18. Jordan and Connor still live at home with Tracy and Wayne, who are now grandparents to Jayd’s 2 children Oliver aged 2, and Harper aged 2 months.

Wayne requires 24/7 care and, apart from night carers, Tracy has devoted her life to looking after Wayne. Tracy is truly inspirational and Wayne would not be with us today, if not for the unstinting love and devotion she bestows on him.

Tracy rides the rollercoaster of living with someone who is a victim of an acquired brain injury. Many who contact our Charity, are given confidence, encouragement, and comfort, knowing that Tracy has found herself in similar circumstance and still offers valuable support.

Ted Le Brocq

Trustee: Born and educated in Jersey, Ted joined the Royal Navy, in 1976, to train and qualify in 1980, as a Physiotherapist. Ted has a keen interest in music, golf, golf, following Formula 1, D.I.Y., and cooking but with two young children, rarely finds time for anything but the latter.

Ted specializes in Neuro Physiotherapy and met Wayne in 2001. Over the years, Ted has been disappointed in and frustrated by the dwindling amount of support and treatment on offer to a great number of Acquired Brain Injured sufferers. The desire to see equal opportunities for all those sufferers prompted him to agree to be a Trustee of the charity.

Daryl Boswell

Trustee: Currently based in Southampton, I have over 20 years of experience as an Independent Financial Adviser supporting clients in London and throughout the South, with specialist knowledge in commercial finance and large case residential financing. More recently I have launched an international internet business trading vintage items and antiquities. Interests include salsa dancing, classic cars and power boat racing.

I met Isobel over 10 years ago through Salsa and took part in the initial fund raising to treat Wayne at the Schneider clinic. The cause has since developed into a trust to assist other people with acquired brain injury.


James Gleisner

Trustee: James Gleisner, a Paralegal in the Personal Injury department of Trethowans LLP’s Southampton office, has been appointed as a trustee and board member of the Wayne Howard Trust, an acquired brain injury charity.

James came across The Wayne Howard Trust at the beginning of the year and was instantly keen to get involved with them. Not only due to his interest in supporting people with acquired brain injuries but also as someone who is a biker and is passionate about motorbikes!

On James’ appointment as a trustee, Isobel Howard had this to say: “The Wayne Howard Trust is a small local Charity, who are actively passionate about supporting survivors of brain injury.  James is a young, personable, highly intelligent, and caring young man, whom we believe is the perfect fit for our Charity”.

In addition, James comments: “it is a privilege to have been appointed to the board of trustees for this worthwhile charity.  Hopefully I can help raise awareness of an injury that is not talked about and is not as high profile as some others but still affects people’s lives in a massive way.  This injury not only affects the injured party but also those around them who care for them the most. Through the hard work and support of charities like the Wayne Howard Trust, injured people and their families will hopefully get the care and support that is needed and I am happy that I can be a small part of that”.
