Carers UK appoints new Chief Executive!

Carers UK is delighted to announce the appointment of a new Chief Executive, Helen Walker. Helen joins the organisation from the national volunteering charity TimeBank where she has spent ten years as Chief Executive.
Helen will take over as Carers UK’s new Chief Executive on 3 December 2018. Helen replaces Heléna Herklots CBE, who stepped down after nearly 7 years at Carers UK to become the Older People’s Commissioner for Wales.

Helen has a strong track record of leadership in civil society organisations and we hope to introduce Helen to you via our different channels and events when she starts.

With the Autumn/Winter heralding many different new challenges and opportunities, we’ll be producing updates on key policy developments relevant to each nation – news on the Green Paper on Social Care and what it means for carers in England, the NHS Plan in England and whether it meets our goals for carers, the Budget, progress on carers’ benefits in Scotland as they are implemented, developments in Wales, progress on topics in Northern Ireland, as well as continuing to keep you up to date with interesting practice, useful legal judgments and insightful research and facts.
