Lankelly Chase appoints new Trustees

Lankelly Chase is delighted to announce the appointment of four new trustees to its Board.  Together, they bring significant experience of the voluntary sector, commissioning and severe and multiple disadvantage. Their appointment also helps to increase Lankelly Chase’s connection with northern regions and cities following evidence from our Hard Edges report which demonstrates the disproportionate prevalence of severe and multiple disadvantage in northern urban areas.

Our new trustees are:

Evelyn Asante-Mensah OBE, Director of EAM Solutions, Commissioner at the Equality and Human Rights Commission, Chair of Arawak Walton Housing Association and Director of Social Business Company

Ollie Batchelor, Executive Director at Changing Lives, Founder and Chair of Soul Food Spaces

Darren Murinas, Vice Chair of Stoke Expert Citizens and Board Member of Voices

Robin Tuddenham, Director of Communities and Service Support, Calderdale Metropolitan Council and Editorial Board member of Probation Journal

These appointments follow an extensive external search and competitive interview process. The new trustees join a highly committed and determined Board chaired by Dame Suzi Leather. They will help oversee the next phase of Lankelly Chase’s long term mission to help transform the lives of people who face severe and multiple disadvantage. In particular, they will strengthen Lankelly Chase’s insights into the challenges of and opportunities for tackling severe and multiple disadvantage on the ground.

Our new trustees’ initial four year tenure will begin on 24 June 2015.
