Trustee Board

Mark Wynter – Trustee

Mark has 20 years experience of working in TV Postproduction for The Farm Group, based in Soho London. In 2007 he set up a family-run Charity called “Heathers Cycle of Life”, which involved a charity bike ride around Kent that has raised over £100k for Cancer Research UK / Bobby Moore Fund.

As a Husband and Father, and having supported friends through their difficult separations, and realising that there is so little support for Dads generally; he couldn’t be more excited to get on board and help with this venture, and bring his TV and Broadcast Media skills and experience on board to make a difference to as many Dads as possible.

Ben Leb – Trustee

Ben is a specialist real property and chancery barrister who regularly deals with various trusts and commercial disputes. His practice is eventful, varied and focuses on complex property, trusts and fraud litigation. Ben brings his experience in legal practice, compliance and commerce to his role as a trustee. 

On a personal level, Ben has a real passion and vested interest in mental health service provision, the raising of awareness around suicide prevention and access to justice. Ben lives in Chislehurst, Kent and enjoys long walks on the Kent countryside and being at sea off the Kent Coast.   

Zara Hickmott – Chair of Trustees

Zara has lived in Kent for her whole life and is a Mum to two adolescent children. Zara has nine years experience as a qualified social worker and a seventeen year career working in the care sector. As a social worker, Zara has worked in the child protection field, developing her passion in supporting and achieving change with the families she worked with. Zara has worked in practice development roles, undertaking auditing, mentoring and coaching less experienced workers, as well as undertaking practice teaching at local universities. More recently in 2017; Zara started assessing foster parents through the Form F process, providing robust and succinct reports to fostering panels.

Zara has a great deal of experience in working with Father’s, Step-Father’s and Grandfather’s as part of her role and feels passionately about their inclusion in safeguarding practice.

Senior Management Team

Nav – Chief Executive

Nav is the founder of Dads Unlimited and a Single Dad. After a fairly tough time with his divorce; and subsequently looking after his son as Primary Carer, he set up Dads Unlimited. He wants to make life easier for Dads in his situation, and provide the advice, support and community he never had. He doesn’t want anyone to have to go through what he had to.

Anna – Head of Family Court Support

Anna is a qualified lawyer from Russia, where she grew up and worked. She has been living in the UK since 2006; and has experience working in commercial property lettings, assets management and the energy sector.

Through personal experience, Anna understands the impact of family breakdown, and would like to make a practical difference to people, and provide support to those needing help with separation, divorce and adjustment to a new life as smoothly as possible. Anna’s great passion is to help people and is proud to be a part of the Dads Unlimited team.

Anna is married with 2 children.

The co-parenting programme was a groundbreaking moment. It has given me clarity. It has shifted my life so much. The quality of the mentoring support has been great. I was able to do things myself, but I received the support to take the correct routes. It empowered me, and I was in charge of my decisions but with the company of the mentoring service.
