Changing of the guard!

After 5 years as CEO, Sarah is stepping back (into another role at acet UK) to allow her to take on other life challenges. Thank you, Sarah, for your passion, commitment, positivity and care!

Sarah shares a little about her time at the helm:

"I've thoroughly enjoyed my time as CEO of acet UK. It has been a real privilege to lead such a wonderful charity that has an impact all over the world, from inner London to rural parts of Nigeria, from prisons in Belarus to clinics in India.

Although I am stepping down from the CEO role, I am delighted to be continuing to serve acet UK in the part-time role of Fundraising Manager while I also start a new exciting chapter of my life as a foster carer.

Ensuring that young people are able to flourish and reach their potential has always been a key motivator for me in my work and I'll have the opportunity of doing that in a different way now, caring for a child/children in my own home. I would very much appreciate your prayers!" 

We’d like to officially welcome our new CEO, Catherine Healey, to the acet UK family! Catherine has over 25 years of experience in community development in Africa, India and Eastern Europe, and 16 years in youth work. Read more about Catherine on our team page or connect with her on Linkedin.
