New leadership for Independent Children’s Homes Association

The Independent Children’s Homes Association has appointed three new co-chairs to lead its work lobbying for and representing independent sector homes.

Paul O’Leary, of Cornerstones, Jim Sullivan (Thoughts of Others) and Pauline Webster (Childhood First) have taken up the roles, replacing Danny Curran (Care Afloat) and Alison Trainor (Oracle Care), who have decided to stand down.

ICHA executive officer Roy Williamson said the appointments came with the association’s membership at record levels, currently including 79 organisations.

He added: “With a new committee in place and three enthusiastic co-chairs, I expect ICHA to continue having an influence on the sector and ultimately helping maintain high standards of residential care for children and young people.”
