Our team

Switch Now was founded by Mark Hawking and Catherine Fairholm. The idea was born out of their own experiences, a wealth of knowledge gained and brought from teaching and working with young people with learning difficulties and disabilities in Cambridgeshire and the recognition that there was a clear gap in the market in the area for a provision of this type.
