Meet our Trustee Neil Palmer

Area of expertise: Residential Property and new start-up businesses

"Enham Trust is an essential charity for disabled people and the Trust requires support throughout the community. I relish the opportunity to work with this worthwhile organisation."

Neil has developed small-scale property developments since a road traffic accident left him paralysed in 2001 and unable to continue his career in the lithographic printing industry. He owns a portfolio of local property and is a Director of a residential letting agency based in Hampshire, which was set up in 2015.

Recently, Neil has set up a micro-brewery in Broughton in the heart of the Test Valley and he has a real passion for supporting local businesses, especially new start-ups. His role within the brewery will be within sales and marketing.

Due to his complete spinal injury, Neil understands the challenges that disabled people can face; he believes that physical and mental challenges is a complex and ever changing issue. The only way we can begin to meet these needs is through educating the wider community.

Neil lives in the Abbotts Ann with his wife, 2 young children, Cockapoo, 2 cats and 4 chickens. His wife is a Specialist Paediatric Physiotherapist with an interest in Neonatology.
