Dr Easton said:
“I am delighted to continue working with the Board and staff at Ageing Better for a substantial period of time. As we emerge from Covid-19, the need for change in the issues we are dealing with in work, housing, health, and communities has become ever more pressing. I am excited to be part of this endeavour and to be able to support the organisation in its next phase of development.”
