In the closing months of 2019, local charity, Ipswich Housing Action Group has seen two significant changes in its leadership. Jools Ramsey, has joined the organisation as new CEO and Toni Lancaster has stepped up as Chair of the board of Trustees, after the retirement of both previous incumbents.
Toni, whose day job is as a project manager on a national community engagement project for Royal Voluntary Service, said that she is relishing the opportunity to work with the charity as chair as it looks to build on its solid foundation and expand its services in the future.
Toni said “Ipswich Housing Action Group is an amazing organisation to volunteer for. We are a friendly independent charity that offers a variety of support services that anyone who is homeless, or potentially facing homelessness, can access. These include money advice, supported housing, outreach and day services at our Chapman Centre where visitors can access showers, laundry, hot meals and clinical support.
IHAG are now looking for new Trustees to join the board whose life experience could benefit the ongoing development and governance of the organisation. In essence if you are person focused, have a few hours a month to offer and passionate about community support we want to hear from you.”
