The Peter Williams Trust fund was established in 1991 by Alan & Dorothy Williams in memory of their son Peter who, after surviving a long illness that resulted in a 15 month coma at 9 years old, died in a hiking accident at the age of 16 years. In their respective careers both Alan and Dorothy have been a formidable team in the advocacy of quality services for pre-school children and their families, and especially for those children who faced the challenge of social and material disadvantage.
