A fond farewell to Carolyn McConnell

Yesterday, our charity said a fond farewell to Chief Quality and Risk Officer, Carolyn McConnell.

Passing the torch to Jemima Burnage and moving on to enjoy her retirement, Carolyn spent five incredible years with us and made an enormous contribution to our organisation during this time.

On her departure, Carolyn shared: “My sincerest thanks to all our colleagues for all your efforts over the last five years. It has been my privilege to lead the Quality function of our charity and see the incredible strides we’ve all made together to transform lives and ensure that people are truly living the Best Lives Possible.”

“In my time at Community Integrated Care, I simply couldn’t have worked with better teams. Throughout our charity, there’s an unwavering commitment to do the right thing and keep the people we support at the very heart of everything, and that’s what makes us so special.”

“I’ll of course also be watching on from afar and seeing Community Integrated Care go from strength to strength – I wish all our colleagues the very best as they continue to change people’s lives for the better.”

Jim Kane, our Chief Executive Officer, said: “We’re incredibly grateful to Carolyn for everything she’s achieved since joining Community Integrated Care. Social care is an increasingly complex operating environment and during her tenure, Carolyn has established robust frameworks to ensure that as a charity, we are well-run and well-governed, whilst still able to deliver innovative, flexible, and transformative support, that truly changes people’s lives. We wish Carolyn all the best for the future and a very well-deserved, happy retirement.”

We would like to thank Carolyn for her incredible leadership over the past five years and share our well wishes as she moves into her retirement.
