Can you imagine what it's like... it's like... to not be
able to bathe yourself?
it's like... to be unable to cook
without risking an accident?
it's like... to feel like you are living
in solitary confinement?
The evidence is clear, you can help tear down the barriers to independence.

Management & Leadership

  • Malcolm Ozin MBE - President

    Malcolm Ozin - President

    In recognition of his tireless voluntary work, not just for Jewish Blind & Disabled but also for his synagogue and as senior trustee of the Cecil Rosen Trust, Malcolm was awarded a richly deserved MBE in the 2012 new year's honours list.

    A businessman with long experience in the property industry, Malcolm was one of the founders of what was then the Jewish Blind and Physically Handicapped Society in 1969. Along with the late Cecil Rosen, Malcolm presided over the phenomenal growth of the charity from the opening of its first building, Cavendish House, in Dulwich in 1971 through to the opening of its seventh building, Frances & Dick James Court in 2003. Malcolm spends the majority of his week working for the charity in an entirely voluntary capacity as its President and describes this work as: "Extremely satisfying and rewarding". His greatest pleasure is: "To follow the progress of our tenants from the initial home visit and watch them blossom within the Jewish Blind & Disabled family".

    John Joseph MBE - Chairman

    John started his own company, GET, at age 16 with a loan. By 1995, when GET Group floated on the London Stock Exchange with a full listing, it had built a strong brand and was renowned for its innovation and product design. John remained Chairman until the company was acquired in November 2006 at which time the Group employed over 300 people with an turnover of almost £100m.

    Jewish Blind & Disabled's founder, the late Cecil Rosen, passed away in 1994. John, who had been a Council Member for some years, was asked to become Chairman. John stated that he would take on the role of Chairman, in a voluntary capacity, on condition he was allowed to drive the charity forward to meet the demands of the community. Since 1995, 5 additional developments have been built, adding an extra 225 flats to the previous 72.
