Latest developments in the management and operation of the NCCF

There have been a number of changes at the NCCF in the first part of 2018. Here is a summary:

Reviews and Appeals Officer

It was decided that the role of Reviews and Appeals Officer should be independent to the Board of Trustees and following a consultation exercise, the NCCF is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Richard Hyde.

Richard brings a wealth of legal experience and knowledge of issues within the nuclear veteran community to the role.


The NCCF is honoured to announce that John Baron Member of Parliament for Basildon and Billericay is now the Patron and Parliamentary Adviser for the NCCF.

Chairman, Jeff Liddiatt said:-

I am so pleased to be able to announce John’s patronage. He has been a stalwart champion of the nuclear community for many years. Without the huge amount of work and support from John there would have been no recognition by the PM, no Aged Veterans Fund and no NCCF.

Change of Appointment Status

Following reviewing potential conflicts of responsibility a revision of the constitution has been made by the Board of Trustees.  The reserved Trustee positions for BNTVA Trustees has been removed in favour of reserved positions for members of the wider nuclear survivor community. The subsequent change of appointment status from ‘BNTVA Reserved Trustee’ to ‘Nuclear Community Reserved Trustee’ for Don James and Bob Ireland has been enacted.
