This Trustees Week, Parents And Children Together (PACT) is pleased to announce that the charity has a new Chair of Trustees.

Wes Cuell has joined the Executive Board and takes over from Jim Brown as Chairman.

Wes, a qualified social worker, has more than 40 years’ experience of working in social care, primarily in services for children and young people. He chairs the Hertfordshire Adoption Panel and, having been adopted as a child, has a lifelong interest in and commitment to the role of adoption in transforming the lives of children.

He said: "I am delighted at the opportunity to join the team at PACT, an agency that enables me to develop my commitment to adoption and family support and which reflects the very standards of practice that I have always aspired to."

Outgoing chairman Jim Brown led PACT's Executive Board for six years. PACT Chief Executive Jan Fishwick OBE said: “We are so grateful to Jim for the many years of unfailing support and excellent leadership he has given to PACT. He has chaired our executive board through both challenging and successful times and we thank him for his wisdom, his humour and, above all, his belief in the cause.”

“We are delighted to welcome Wes as our new chairman. Wes has such a wealth of experience in the social care sector and we look forward to benefiting from his knowledge and his passion for making a difference to the lives of vulnerable children and families.”
