To support the Pioneering Care Partnership’s (PCP) growth and next stage of development, the charity is delighted to appoint a highly skilled, experienced leader to join the team as deputy chief executive.
Liz Fisher joins the charity with a passion to tackle health inequalities and making a difference for people, as well as previous experience in overseeing projects in both the community and voluntary sector.
Liz brings senior leadership experience from previous roles with The National Trust and The Auckland Project.
Within both organisations, Liz has supported and oversaw projects in similar spheres to the work PCP undertakes, including working in partnership and community development.
Liz said: “I am genuinely honoured to have been offered this role at PCP and I’m looking forward to meeting teams, volunteers, and our partners over the next few weeks.
“As someone with a passion for making a positive impact for communities, this opportunity is a perfect fit.”
Liz will work alongside PCP’s senior leadership team and chief executive Carol Gaskarth – pictured with Liz (above) – to meet the charity’s objectives to support as many people as possible.
Carol said: “The calibre of candidates for the role was very high and Liz is exceptional, bringing a breadth of experience along with a pragmatic ‘can do’ approach to our wonderful, dedicated team.
“At PCP our values and mission statement of ‘Health, Wellbeing and Learning for All’ is at the core of everything we do.
“Liz clearly shared our values to make a difference with ambitions to support people and communities.
“I am looking forward to working closely with Liz, Trustees and the rest of the staff team as we look ahead to the future.”
PCP is an award-winning charity with its head office, the Pioneering Care Centre, based at Cobblers Hall in Newton Aycliffe.
