Sharron Smith has been appointed the new CEO of York Carers Centre as of April 2023. Sharron began her journey with York Carers Centre on a 3-month temporary contract as a Young Carer Worker back in 2000. Sharron was heavily involved in the development of the Young Carers service, establishing the Young Adult Carers service (one of the first in the country!) and helping to shape and evolve the Adult Carers service into what it is today. 23 years on, Sharron has been appointed CEO of York Carers Centre.
Rosemarie Temple Chair of Trustees said:
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I would like to welcome our new CEO Sharron Smith! Sharron brings a wealth of experience to the role, in both the ‘Carers field’ and charity sector. We look forward to working with Sharron to continue taking York Carers Centre forward.”
Sharron went on to say
I am truly honoured to have this role and I’d like to thank the Trustees, staff team and carers for their support. I’d also like to show my gratitude to Carole for her guidance, encouragement and for all the work that has been done previously to make York Carers Centre what it is today.
I hope to build on this and continue to ensure the centre maintains it’s positive reputation in the city. I am very proud to be part of such a wonderful organisation which is genuinely passionate about supporting carers and really does keep carers at the forefront of everything they do.”
