Quarriers’ new chief executive officer has taken up his post with a pledge to care for some of society’s most vulnerable people during an “extremely difficult” time.
Dr Ron Culley began working at the care charity – which supports children and adults across Scotland – following the departure of Alice Harper, who was at the helm for seven years.
Dr Culley previously was the chief officer of the Western Isles Health and Social Care Partnership, and has also been the chief officer in health and social care for Cosla.
He said: “Quarriers is focused on providing care for some of society’s most vulnerable people and this is more important than ever during these extremely difficult times.
“The organisation has established a robust emergency planning team to ensure the safety and welfare of the people we support, our staff and our volunteers during the Covid-19 pandemic and I am ready to lead the team and play my part.”
Tom Scholes, chairman of Quarriers’ board of trustees said: “Ron brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of the social care sector and we are delighted to welcome him on-board during this difficult time.”
“On behalf of Quarriers’ board of trustees I would like to extend our thanks to Alice Harper for her hard work and commitment over the past seven years.”
