Agnes Lunny, Positive Futures

My experience in the Voluntary Sector began in 1989 when I moved to a management position, working with people with a learning disability in Barnardos.

I researched and co-founded a registered Charity for people with a learning disability, United Response Northern Ireland (now Positive Futures).

I have been Chief Executive there since 1995. My services to people with a learning disability were recognised when I was honoured to receive an OBE in 2006.
