New CEO for Cirencester charity

The Churn Project, which supports young families and people at risk from isolation and loneliness in Cirencester and the surrounding area, has appointed a new chief executive officer.

Juliet Cocks took up her appointment on 1st September, as reported by Charity Today.

She joined The Churn Project from social housing group, GreenSquare. The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way The Churn Project delivers its services to meet new demands. It said Juliet's invaluable community experience will help to shape the charity's future.

Known and respected across the county for the work it does with young families and with people who are older, long term unemployed, vulnerable or socially isolated, The Churn Project has been led for the past 17 years by Fran Embleton-Smith, with the support of its trustees, a small team of part-time staff and a host of volunteers.

The Churn said that Fran led the charity with skill and commitment and has left behind a strong and dedicated team.

Juliet Cocks said she acknowledges the challenges ahead but is looking forward to working with The Churn's team to build on the fantastic work the charity does in the community.
