At our recent AGM at the end of 2018, Helen Kessell decided to step down as Chair after a spell of 5 years. Helen and the Board have witnessed many changes during her time in charge of Care and Repair and have faced many challenges including ever tightening funding and budgets, personnel and management changes, introduction of the new HSCP and integrated service requirements, technology integration and introduction of new services and much more. The Board thanked Helen for her time, direction and guidance provided during her time as Chair. Helen will remain as a Board member ensuring that her experience and knowledge continues to benefit the Board and Care And Repair.
At our January 2019 meeting Tony Davey BEM, new Chair of Care And Repair, presented Helen with a lovely bouquet of flowers on behalf of the Board.
