Jayne Ball

Jayne carries out secretarial tasks for the Lollipop trustees and the the newest member of the trustee board, joining in 2020. Before taking early retirement, Jayne worked for 14 years for North Yorkshire County Council as a Specialist Sensory Practitioner, supporting deaf children and young people. This support was in family homes or educational settings throughout North Yorkshire, from preschools to colleges, as directed by a Teacher of the Deaf or Multi sensory Impairment Teacher. The specialist support included social and emotional support, NDCS programmes, hearing aid/radio aid care and bespoke interventions. During my time in this role Jayne signposted many North Yorkshire parents to Lollipop and recognised the benefits that the charity can bring to deaf children, young people and their families.

Jayne is also a qualified Habilitation Assistant with experience of supporting children and young people with a vision impairment, including those registered as educationally blind, requiring long cane and independence skills. Now retired, she’s enjoying having more time for early morning runs and lots of walks in our glorious Yorkshire! Jayne has also just become a Grandma!
