Anne, who has been a Trustee of WithYou’s Board since 2015, had also held the role of Vice-Chair of Trustees from 2018.
Anne succeeds in this role Lord Alex Carlile, former Chair of the Board, who stepped down in October 2022 after completing two three-year terms in office which, in his address in the last Annual Report and Accounts of the charity, he referred to as ‘six demanding, stimulating and inspiring years’.
Anne brings a wealth of experience to the role, she is a trained solicitor and is the Company Secretary and Assistant Director of Governance and Compliance for housing association, Golding Homes. Anne is also the Vice-Chair of the governing board of the Chartered Institute of Housing and Deputy Chair of the Eldon Housing Association. Previously she has chaired two NHS trusts and held board positions for charities and school governing bodies.
Anne said: ‘I am delighted to continue my journey at WithYou, now as the Chair of the Board of Trustees. It is such an important time for the drug, alcohol and mental health support sector as we consider the long-term societal impact of Covid on our service users, and the ongoing cost-of-living concerns. The work WithYou does to support those most in need is phenomenal and I am thrilled to be able to continue working with our dedicated staff to support some of the most vulnerable people in our society, improving their lives.’
