National disability charity Livability has appointed Michael Smith as its new chief executive.

Smith, who is currently chief executive of disability charity Enham, will start his new role in mid-October.

His previous roles include director at the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Smith has also spent time in the Royal Air Force and has worked with a number of organisations that support disabled people.

He replaces Mary Bishop, who is leaving Livability to spend more time with her family.

Baroness Howarth, chair of Livability, said: "Smith’s wide-ranging experience of the charitable sector and his knowledge of disability issues will prove invaluable. I am sure he will make an outstanding contribution to our work at what is an exciting and challenging time for Livability and the sector as a whole."
