Thomas Pocklington Trust (TPT) has appointed Charles Colquhoun as its permanent Chief Executive.

Charles joined TPT in 2016 as Director of Resources and has been working as Interim Chief Executive since February of this year, following Peter Corbett’s retirement.

Charles said:

“I’m very proud to have been appointed and be part of the team at Thomas Pocklington Trust, improving the lives of blind and partially sighted people.”

Alison Oliver has already been appointed as Director of Strategic Partnerships and Projects, and Emma Hughes is now our Director of Services. With Charles, they make up the Trust’s Executive Leadership Team.

In the coming months, the Board of Trustees, Charles and the Executive Leadership Team will be working on implementing TPT’s recently updated strategy, achieving its mission of enabling and empowering blind and partially sighted people of all ages to live the life they want to lead.
