Leonard Cheshire to appoint head of communications

The Leonard Cheshire Foundation is on the verge of naming a director of communications and is now advertising for a director of fundraising, a position it expects to fill this autumn.

Both posts are new and have been created in the wake of a decision earlier this year to abolish the post of director of public affairs. It is part of an ongoing reorganisation at the disability care charity.

A spokeswoman said: "Fundraising and communications were previously handled by the public affairs director but we felt that because we had grown so much they had become too much for one person."

Leonard Cheshire helps 19,000 people in Britain with disabilities to lead full lives through its 159 homes, day services, respite units and home care services. It is one of the biggest employers in the charity sector, with 8,000 staff.
