Our new CEO, Helen Evans on her first day

We are delighted to announce that today is the first day for Helen Evans as our new Chief Executive. Helen brings a wealth of relevant skills and experience that we are confident will take CAUK through to its third phase of development, building on the success of our Big Lottery funded Big Step project. Until recently Helen was Chief Executive of Getting Heard, an Oxfordshire based advocacy charity. Under her leadership the charity was awarded the prestigious Quality Performance Mark, secured multi-year Big Lottery funding and was one of the first providers of Care Act advocacy in the UK.

Before working in the UK charity sector Helen was Head of Safeguarding for a global aid agency, having transitioned from an earlier 10 year career in international Human Resources. Helen is also an alum of the Jo Cox Women in Leadership Programme and former select committee expert witness. Helen will start on the 17th September 2018 and will be home-based, travelling as needed, working from 9.30am to 2.30pm every day except Monday.

Helen has created a special video for her first day, which you can see below…
