David Baker, Founder
David was truly passionate about supporting young people through the GOFISH programme, having built it up from scratch with the help of George Daulman and Debbie Betteridge, and latterly running the programme with Nicola Davis. Not only did David dedicate much of his time to supporting young and vulnerable people, but he did it with pure joy and always went the extra mile to ensure these young people could have a promising future. David sadly passed away on August 1st 2019 following a short illness, leaving GOFISH as his legacy.
