National older person’s charity MHA has announced Sam Monaghan as its new chief executive.
Sam joins MHA from Barnardo’s, where he was corporate director children’s services. Prior to that, he worked at Action for Children and was a practitioner and manager in social services for a number of years.
MHA provides care, support and accommodation for more than 17,800 older people across England, Scotland and Wales through its care homes, retirement living communities and community-based Live at Home schemes. It is marking its 75th anniversary in 2018.
Sam said: “What attracted me to the charity was its values-based approach to everything that it does and the quality of the services it provides. It puts its residents and members at the heart of its services, helping older people to feel supported in all they do and in their relationships with family, friends, our staff and volunteers.”
