The Chief Executive of Wealden Citizens Advice is leaving the voluntary organisation to take up a similar post in Croydon.
Caroline Mack has skillfully led the Independence charity embracing
changes in technology, transforming the service and ensuring financial stability.
The Chair of Trustees, Dr Dorothy Goldman said:
In the eight years that Caroline Mack has been the Chief Executive Officer of Wealden Citizens Advice, we have all come to rely on her commitment, hard work and integrity. She has been dedicated to providing an advice service capable of answering the needs of all the people of Wealden; her success in doing so is a measure of her strengths. All her colleagues will miss her humour and common sense; she will be a hard act to follow.
Wealden Citizens Advice offers free, independent, confidential and impartial advice to the community from its Bureau in Croham Road, Crowborough, as well as other locations across the Wealden district. Trained volunteers see around 5,000 clients a year and help them with information and advice on a wide range of topics, including money, housing, consumer and other problems.
Councillor Brian Redman, Chair of Wealden District Council said:
We have worked with Caroline in a tremendously successful partnership for a number of years now. As is the case with most local authorities, Wealden CAB receives the largest grant of any organisation in the District and providing invaluable advice services to Wealden residents. Last year, the Council was delighted to be part of the successful bid led by Caroline for over £300,000 from the Big Lottery Fund (BIG) and Cabinet Office under the Advice Services Transition Programme. We thank Caroline for all her hard work to help Wealden and wish her every success with her new role and for the future.
