SUTTON Coldfield Charitable Trust, whose origins date back to the 16th Century, is a major Almshouse and grant-making charity in the West Midlands, with its main objective being to alleviate hardship and improve the quality of life for residents of the Royal town.   

Chief Executive, Ernie Murray, has been in post for over 12 years, during which time, he has overseen significant changes in the Trust’s operations, ably supported by his talented leadership team, all of whom share the Trust’s ethos to support the community.

New Chief Executive, Tina Swani, joins the organisation on 1st July and will formally take over the role on Ernie’s retirement in mid-August. 

Andrew Burley, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, said:

“We thank Ernie for his outstanding contribution to Sutton Coldfield Charitable Trust and will continue to build upon his achievements.  We are delighted to welcome Tina into the role; she brings a wealth of experience following 19 years as CEO of Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice, working across health and social care and with more than a decade’s expertise as a Board member and Chair in housing and almshouse charities.”  

Tina said:

“I look forward to meeting everyone involved in the Trust which, through its work in Sutton Coldfield, has had a significant impact on the heritage of the Royal Town and the lives of thousands of local people over several hundreds of years.”

Sutton Coldfield Charitable Trust made grants of nearly £1.4m to local causes and cultural activities in Sutton Coldfield during its last financial year and has 46 Almshouses occupied by around 50 residents at its Lingard House Estate in Walmley.
