I am delighted to announce that Debra Clothier has been appointed as the first Director of NNECL (the National Network for the Education of Care Leavers). This is an exciting new role made possible by transition funding provided by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. Debra has been a Chief Executive Officer for two national charitable organisations within the criminal justice field developing strategy, managing staff, fundraising and delivering on operational matters. She is passionate about supporting care leavers and care experienced young people to succeed. Debra is able to start immediately and so has joined NNECL with immediate effect.
I am sure you will all join me in welcoming Debra to the NNECL team.
