Appointment of NSAB's new chairperson

We are pleased to announce that the Norfolk Safeguarding Adults Board has appointed a new independent chairperson.  Heather Roach will be joining us in early August.  Heather has had a 30 year career in policing with Lincolnshire Constabulary, from the rank of constable to deputy chief constable, retiring in 2016.  Her experience lies within criminal investigation and also safeguarding vulnerable adults.

Since retiring, Heather has been working as a self-employed management consultant holding a number of positions, including independent chair for the Lincolnshire Safeguarding Adults Board.

Heather comes to this role with extensive experience in managing many aspects of a large and complex organisation from the governance and regulation perspective, to finance and resources, risk management, health and safety, commanding operational incidents, alongside working in partnership with organisations in Lincolnshire, across the East Midlands and nationally. 

We're really looking forward to working with Heather.  She has a lot of valuable experience and knowledge to bring to the board continuing on the great work already done by our retiring chair, Joan Maughan.
