About Ian McGrath

I am the founder and MD of an Autism charity called Hearts And Minds Challenge which was set up in 2010. We have supported many Autistic families through various difficulties through Hearts And Minds Challenge. Our Mission is to raise the quality of life of individuals and their families affected by autism by ensuring the highest standards in education, care and support leading to employment and equality of living opportunities. We would be looking to support Pictor Academy by providing and funding extra support services for the pupils and their families.

I served as  governors at Pictor. I am married and the father of a special needs son.

Prior to setting up the charity I worked in the construction industry and managed plant hire companies with annual turnovers in excess of 3 million per year and employing over 40 staff.

I have experience of negotiating contracts with major companies in the construction industry both in the UK and Ireland.
