LEARNING disability charity United Response has appointed chartered accountant Andy Ward as its new Director of Finance. Andy succeeds departing executive Jerome Walls who will leave the post in August 2020 after four years of service.

“We would like to thank Jerome for his important contribution to our charity over the past four years and we wish him all the very best in his future endeavours.
