Care England Staff Changes

Care England, the largest and most diverse representative body for independent providers of adult social care has announced that Ann Mackay and Louisa Collyer-Hamlin will be leaving Care England this year. Louisa will be leaving in the middle of February and Ann in the middle of March.

Professor Martin Green OBE, Chief Executive of Care England, says:

“Ann and Louisa will leave a very strong legacy for Care England and an enormous gap in our team.  However, I want to reassure everyone that Ann and Louisa have developed a very strong and brilliant policy team, and though they are a tremendous loss, I have confidence that the team will continue their work and ensure Care England remains the premier representative body. I will be reviewing our current structure and moving swiftly to ensure these vital roles and functions are covered”.

Ann has worked for Care England and its predecessor bodies for many years, and she has decided to retire and take a very well earned rest. Ann’s knowledge and networks within social care are unparalleled, and she is highly respected by Care England members and all key stakeholders, and she will leave Care England with a great legacy of achievement.

Louisa has also worked for Care England, and its predecessor bodies, for many years, and she has decided to leave to concentrate on her family life and other interests. Louisa has worked tirelessly to ensure that Care England has a high media profile, and her Parliamentary work has also been outstanding and has positioned Care England as a respected and authoritative body with politicians of all parties, and in both Houses.
