Dear members, colleagues and supporters,
I am delighted to be able to introduce you to New Family Social’s new Director, Tor Docherty, who our Trustees have selected from a very strong field of candidates.
I look forward to working with Tor over the coming months to support her in her new role, and will be introducing her to the many agencies, organisations and individuals we work with. Tor told me recently someone had said that taking over NFS was like her adopting my baby – if that’s the case, I am confident the baby is in very good hands!
Today is my last day as Director. Running NFS during its first 6 years has been an absolute privilege, and I would like to thank everyone who has helped the charity on its way, and to wish everyone all the very best for the future.
Please find the message below from Tor.
“I am thrilled to become New Family Social’s new Director. I have been a member for three years during which I have made many good friends and received lots of support. I have more than fifteen years’ experience of working in the voluntary sector in national and regional charities in the roles of Chief Executive, senior manager, volunteer and trustee. I have worked for four LGBT charities and volunteered for others. I am passionate about the voluntary sector, equality and the needs of LGBT people in all our diversity.
I live in Cambridgeshire with my partner and our three children aged seven, four and one. Our youngest was placed for adoption in April.
I am looking forward to meeting NFS’s members, volunteers, supporters and partner agencies.
