Catharine Hurford, Chief Executive of Carer Support Wiltshire will leave the organisation at the end of September 2018.

Laraine Marriott, Chair of Trustees said:

“The Board and I are grateful to Catharine for her leadership of Carer Support Wiltshire since her appointment as chief executive in January 2015 and as Operations Manager and Interim Chief Executive prior to that. During her time as chief executive she has steered the organisation through a period of continuous change in the health and social care sector and skilfully handled the changes needed to the way in which we operate arising from this. All this was achieved without losing focus on our purpose to provide the best possible support to carers in Wiltshire and maintaining excellent quality standards.

I have seen first-hand and valued her considerable management and organisational expertise as Chief Executive. Personally I shall miss an outstanding colleague, her passion for Carer Support Wiltshire and her commitment to our carers, staff and volunteers.

It is to Catharine’s credit that Carer Support Wiltshire is in such an excellent position for the next phase of its development.”

Catharine will continue in a part time consultancy capacity while the search for her successor is completed.
