A new Associate Non-Executive Director has been appointed to the Trust’s Board.
Vicci Livingstone-Thompson is the Chief Executive Officer of Inclusion Gloucestershire, a user-led organisation working to further inclusion and champion the voice of people facing disabling barriers across Gloucestershire and beyond. Vicci has career history in senior leadership within the charity disability sector in Gloucestershire, and is passionate about empowering people to play the leading role in managing their health and wellbeing and advocating for community-based preventative care and support.
In 2022, Vicci was named one of the 100 most influential disabled people in the UK on the Shaw Trust’s Power 100 List, and she is also a Trustee of Active Impact, an organisation breaking down barriers to inclusion for disabled children and young people.
Trust Chair, Ingrid Barker, said: “Vicci will be a huge asset to our Board, with her extensive knowledge, skills and experience and her enthusiasm for making life better for people with disabilities in Gloucestershire. She is well known and respected, with a huge network, and I am personally delighted that our Trust will benefit from her leadership skills and energy to bring about positive change for the people we serve.”
Vicci said: “As a lifelong Gloucestershire resident and disabled person, the mission and values of the Trust strongly resonate with me and I am thrilled to be joining the Board with a view to representing the voice of Gloucestershire communities, supporting more partnership working with the Voluntary and Community Sector and tackling health inequalities”.
Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust’s Board is comprised of both Executive and Non-Executive Directors. Executive Directors are responsible for the running of the Trust on a daily basis, while Non-Executive Directors oversee the strategic governance, ensuring the best use is being made of resources, and that financial controls and risk management are being effectively managed.
