Former Coram Family chief executive Honor Rhodes has become director of development at the National Family and Parenting Institute.
Rhodes left Coram in August after a disagreement with trustees about the charity's future direction (Third Sector, 30 August).
Commenting on her new post, Rhodes said she had used NFPI's research and policy directions extensively in the past. "I look forward to helping the organisation branch out into new areas of work and support other organisations to help parents and families in the best ways possible," she said.
Mary MacLeod, chief executive of the NFPI, said Rhodes' role would be to help the institute put research "at the heart of practice".
Before taking her post at Coram, Rhodes was director of services at the Family Welfare Association.
