Hamelin Trust has announced the appointment of Julie Fuller as its new Chief Executive.
Previously at RSAS Age Care, a charity supporting carers of people with dementia, Julie took up her new post on 4th June 2018. She succeeds Steve Fisher who retired from Hamelin Trust in May 2018.
Julie has many years of experience as a Chief Executive, across a wide range of fields, including health and social care, children and young people, housing, and social regeneration. She has a strong track record of delivering significant organisational change and business turnaround initiatives with a focus on the end user.
Julie said: “This is a new challenge for me: working for a leading Essex based charity supporting disabled people. Their work plays an important role in the lives of local disabled people and I’m looking forward to joining the staff, trustees, and volunteers in taking the charity forward.”
Chair of Trustees at Hamelin Trust, Dassos Alexandrou, said: “Julie Fuller is a fantastic appointment. She will bring with her much values experience and skills. Hamelin Trust is proud to have her on board to help transform the lives of disabled people across Essex. I know she will help us to make a huge difference to the lives of the children, adults, and families we support.
“We are very grateful to Steve Fisher, who has retired from the post of CEO after being with the charity for 35 years. He has been instrumental in developing the charity from its early days of supporting two severely disabled children to where we are today. Steve has grown the charity, to the extent that we now have short break services, a resource centre, supported accommodation, and outreach services within the community and individuals’ homes. We thank him for all the dedication, leadership, and hard work he has undertaken from Hamelin over such a long period of time.”
