I can confirm that as of 5 October, Professor Kate Smith was removed from the Board of Trustees at BACP.  

We are aware that Kate has chosen to share some details of her removal, however in the interest of protecting confidentiality we will not be commenting any further on the reasons behind this. 

The Board wishes Kate well, and thanks her for her contributions over the last three years. 

I would like to personally thank her for her efforts on several key projects during her tenure and wish to extend our thanks and appreciation for her service and contribution to BACP. 

On behalf of the Board, the SLT and all staff at BACP, we wish her all the best. 

Natalie Bailey
Chair of BACP
