We’re led by a small part-time leadership team comprising of an Executive Director, Head of Nursing Services, Head of Head of Community Fundraising and Head of Operational Support which collectively manage the daily activities of the charity.
Our Executive Director is responsible to the Board of Trustees via an Executive Committee (EXCO) comprising of three Trustees. The Executive Director and the Executive Committee have responsibility for the daily operational management of the charity, together with the planning and execution of our strategic plan.
Andrew spent many years in Banking and Finance both in the UK and abroad and took the opportunity where possible to get involved with national and local charities. He became more involved with Shipston Home Nursing in September 2017 following a period where we supported him to look after his late wife.
Andrew subsequently volunteered to help provide management support to us and was asked by the Trustees to review how we did things operationally to understand areas where improvements could be made. Following the review Andrew joined us as our Interim Executive Director in November 2017.
He strongly believes that the patient and family experience we can provide is fundamental and should underpin everything we do.
Gemma Roberts – Head of Nursing Services
Gemma is a Registered Nurse who trained at Coventry University and started her nursing career in Critical care. Soon after Gemma realised her passion was in community nursing and she joined the Shipston District Nursing team.
Palliative care then became her special interest and she then joined the Stratford Evening Nurse Service, where she worked closely with local Hospice at Home services and developed a keen interest in Hospice at home care.
Gemma is committed to giving people choice at the end of their lives and being part of Shipston Home Nursing allows her to make this to happen.
Rebecca Mawle – Head of Community Fundraising
Rebecca lives in Great Wolford and has been working with Shipston Home Nursing since its conception in 1997. The original reason she became involved was due to a strong friendship with Penny Birtwell, the late sister of our Founding Trustee Charlie Wells. Rebecca is well known in our community and works tirelessly to build relationships with supporters, sponsors and donors to ensure that people in need of our Nursing care are well informed and know that help is only a phone call away.
