Brian White

We are pleased and proud to announce that MedEquip4Kids Chairman, Brian White, has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2021 in recognition of his services to the community.

After a 27-year career as a chartered accountant partner at Deloitte LLP, Brian now works as a chartered tax adviser. He has been involved with MedEquip4Kids for over 25 years, and for the past 20 of those, he has headed the organisation as our Chairman. Brian is well-known and respected within Manchester’s business community and its Jewish community, and has contributed to numerous other local projects.

MedEquip4Kids Chief Executive, Ghazala Baig, says: “Brian brings such enthusiasm and tireless energy to everything he does. As a charity we have benefited enormously from his leadership, his personal qualities and his impressive network of contacts. I am delighted to hear that his achievements in the field of children’s healthcare have received formal acknowledgement.”

Brian says: “I am humbled and honoured to receive this award. It is a reflection on the great work carried out by MedEquip4Kids over the last 36 years, and a testimony to the equipment they have provided for hospitals and more recently, their mental health provision. I hope that this is the foundation for the charity to grow forward into the future.”

“This donation has enabled us to use more varied and useful therapeutic toys and games when working with children and young people with mental health difficulties, as well as using extra clinic rooms which are now more child-friendly. This has helped reduced anxiety about coming to CAMHS and meant that family therapy can be done. Both parents of a 10 year old boy can now attend with their 5 year old as the youngest child can play with our new resources in the waiting room or clinic space. The 10 year old benefited from therapeutic games about thoughts/feelings and we were also able to observe imaginative play for assessment.”
