Alison Stevens is our Chairperson and was part of the original PAIN organisation. During the late 1980s Alison faced the loss of her own children after wrongly being accused of harming her son. It had transpired that her son was suffering from brittle bones disease and that she had not caused injuries to her son. Luckily Alison managed to keep her children. Alison, felt that without the help and support given to her from PAIN that she would not be with us today. Since then Alison has campaigned tirelessly on behalf of families and lobbying MPs. She has done radio and TV interviews.
