David Baldwin - Chairman
David is a founding member and trustee of the CSF Leak Association, and currently serves as chairman.
David is a Chartered Town Planner with over a decade of experience in the development industry. In 2013, he suffered a cerebrospinal fluid leak due after two osteophytes (bone spurs) punctured the dura in his thoracic spine; ever since, he has been working passionately and proactively to raise awareness of the condition across the UK.
For many years David was a keen white water kayaker and volunteer UKCC/BCU Level 2 coach, a mountain biker, hill walker, scrambler and generally busy and active person. He first became involved in the charity sector missions to Romania, where he worked with disadvantaged children, and helped to renovate schools and distribute aid in the north of the country. David played trumpet for many years in a swing band and orchestras, still plays guitar when he can and worked for a spell as a web designer and developer.
