Staff and volunteers got together this week to thank CEO Emma Cooper for all her work during the last four years leading Evolving Communities.

Emma leaves this month to take up an area manager role with national charity Parkinson’s UK. Emma said: “One of the highlights of my job as CEO has been working with colleagues to put in place a really good quality volunteer programme which sees local people from all walks of life get involved in the important work of Healthwatch.

“I am very grateful for having had the opportunity to play a part in the national and local development of local Healthwatch and I would like to thank everyone at Evolving Communities and others I’ve worked with over the years for all their support and encouragement.

“I’d also like to welcome Mary Curran to the role and hope she enjoys her time with Evolving Communities as much as I have.
