Our weekly round-up of all the latest movers in the charity sector. 

Government

Steve Reed, the Labour and Co-operative MP for Croydon North, has been appointed the shadow minister for civil society. He will take up the role in Tom Watson's shadow culture, media and sport team.

Anna Turley previously held the role, before resigning in June as part of the mass party resignations against Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership.

Chief executive

Brainstrust, the brain cancer charity, has appointed Will Jones as the charity's first ever chief executive. Jones has worked at the charity for seven years, previously as its director of development. He also fulfils advisory roles with Cancer Reseach UK and the National Cancer Registration and Analysis service.

National education charity UFA has appointed Paul Evans as its chief executive. He was formerly director of organisational development and performance at sport for employment charity Street League, where he has worked since 2012.

Trustees

The Small Charities Coalition has appointed a new chair, as well as six other new trustees, to replace members of its board who are retiring after serving two terms. Julia Kaufmann succeeds Simon Hebditch as chair. He is stepping down from the role he has held since the charity merged with Charity Trustee Networks (CTN) in 2011. Kaufmann is a freelance consultant working with small charities, and was previously chief executive of the BBC Children in Need Appeal, and of Gingerbread, the association for one parent families. The other trustees appointed are: Peter Barrow, Madeleine Cassidy, Alice Doyle, Steven Kirkpatrick, Ciaran Price and Alex Smith.

Also appointed to Brainstrust is new chair Chris Baker, who is also UK managing director of global technology company Concur. He is a former senior director of Microsoft, and has been a trustee of the charity since 2011. Stephen Warrington has also been appointed a trustee of the charity.

Martin Thomas has been appointed the new UK chair of trustees for Women for Women International, the charity which helps women survivors of conflict. He officially took Deborah David as chair on 17 October 2016. Thomas is chairman of BACIT (UK) Limited, manager of the BACIT portfolio of assets, and has been a trustee of many charities.
