New Vision for Anglia Care Trust



Press release announcing Jane Simpson’s appointment as our new CEO:

Anglia Care Trust (ACT), the multi-service charity in Ipswich that specialises in preventative, community based support for some of the East of England’s most vulnerable people, has announced the appointment of Jane Simpson as its new CEO.

Jane was promoted from a previous role as Director of Business Support and has worked at ACT since 2006. Outlining her Vision for the charity, Jane said:   

I plan to widen participation from people with lived experience of using ACT services, working to get them more involved across every tier of the organisation, from volunteering to paid roles, including leadership and governance.  People with lived experience are often well qualified to do a good job because they have an innate understanding of the daily life hurdles and challenges faced by our service users.

Whilst the pandemic year was testing for everyone at ACT, I am so proud of this incredible team of staff and volunteers, for their tenacity and determination to keep open for business and continue getting the support to the most vulnerable people.  I am looking forward to leading this team and being able to return to offering even more face-to-face services as the roadmap out of lockdown becomes clearer.”

Graham Walker, ACT’s Chair of Trustees added:

”The board is extremely happy with the appointment of Jane as the new CEO of ACT and supports her strategic vision for the future of the charity. We look forward to her leading our organisation with her usual passion, commitment and enthusiasm.”

Anglia Care Trust (ACT) operates across Suffolk, Norfolk and parts of Essex.  Their services give people the stability, support and motivation to realise their full potential.

ACT delivers wide-ranging projects that support the safety and well-being of children, young people, adults and families. Community Safety services help people to feel safe, Housing Services keep a roof over their heads, Advice and Guidance Services help people to be heard.
