Thank You – We Couldn’t Have Done It Without You

Thank You – We Couldn’t Have Done It Without You

Today [31 May 2017], Peter Bailey, CEO of CrossReach and the Secretary of the Social Care Council of the Church of Scotland, retires following 25 years of supporting the people of Scotland through his work with CrossReach.

“It has been a great privilege to lead this organisation and work alongside staff and volunteers who have a passion for supporting people.  The people we support are at the heart of everything we do and they, along with their friends and families, inspire the work done on behalf of the Church of Scotland.

“It is now time for me to retire, and as many others have over the 150 year history of our organisation, pass the baton on to my successor.” – Peter Bailey (you can read his retirement speech here).

Under his leadership, CrossReach has flourished despite some of the greatest post-war challenges to the social care sector, including unprecedented levels of legislative change and funding cuts.

Vivienne Dickenson will take up the post of CEO from 01 June 2017, having previously served within CrossReach as Director of Children & Family Services.

She commented that, “Peter’s vision of a sustainable future has guided CrossReach through a period of innovation and change.  His determination to serve the people that CrossReach supports, and his passion for developing and encouraging our wonderful staff, have ensured that we are a leading social care provider set up to meet the diverse needs of Scottish communities today, and for generations to come.”

We wish him all the very best for his future, and while he says he couldn’t have done it without us, we know CrossReach would not be where it is today without him.

Thank you!
