Breaking news at Three Cs: JC replaces JC! – introducing Three Cs new CEO

John tells you more about his background ….

I am passionate about working with people with learning disabilities; autism; and mental health needs and supporting them to design, develop and implement innovative services that transform their lives.

I come from a human rights, education and community development background.  I have spent over thirty three years of my working life managing and directing services that enable people to become active, empowered citizens in the communities within which they live and throughout my career I have chosen to work for organisations that focus on human rights.

I have over 25 years’ experience of strategic planning in voluntary sector organisations. I have directed and developed a wide range of services for people with disabilities including: supported living; floating support; day opportunities; vocational training; employment; social enterprise; residential respite care; registered care; and services for children and young people.

I am currently the Chief Executive of Yarrow, which like Three C’s strives to empower people and support them to speak up when their human rights are infringed.   In my current role as CEO of Yarrow, I manage an organisation of 350 employees providing services to approximately 200 people, with an annual turnover over £9.5 million. I have been the CEO of Yarrow for the last 6 years and during that time I have developed and successfully implemented two major strategic plans.

I am very excited about leading Three Cs through the next period of its growth and development.
