Dr Carole Easton OBE will be taking over from Dr Anna Dixon, who announced she was leaving in March 2021 until a permanent replacement is found.
Carole has had an extensive career in the voluntary sector. Her previous roles include Interim Chief Executive at Refuge, Interim Joint Chief Executive at the British Lung Foundation and Chief Executive at the Young Women’s Trust.
Carole is also an experienced non-executive director, Trustee and Chair. She currently sits on the Board of Advance, a charity that works with women who have experienced domestic abuse to be safe and take control of their lives and women who have committed a crime or are at risk of offending. She is also vice-Chair at the Fulham College Academy Trust.
Dr Carole Easton said:
“I am delighted to be given this opportunity to lead Ageing Better during this interim period. I am excited to put my experience to good use and help the organisation prepare for a new permanent Chief Executive. The work of the Centre has demonstrated the benefits and the importance to individuals and to society of ensuring that people can have a good later life. I am keen to support and sustain the excellent work of the charity whose mission is to guarantee that a good later life is an aspiration that everyone can share in the UK.”
