LAMP (Leicestershire Action for Mental Health Project) is delighted to announce the appointment of Sue Langley as the charity’s new chief executive.
Sue, who lives in Leicestershire, joins the charity from a national role with the Crimestoppers Trust and has more than 15 years’ experience working in different communities to help disadvantaged people gain access to services. She has previously worked in children’s healthcare and also set up her own company to help young people, before moving to Crimestoppers seven years ago.
Speaking about her new appointment at LAMP, she said she was excited to be offered the opportunity to lead the charity through its next stage of development.
“Demand for mental health services is growing and we want to be able to meet the accompanying demand for advocacy. We are currently looking for more volunteers and will shortly be recruiting more staff, so it is an exciting time for the charity and my role will be to development and increase awareness of LAMP.”
Sue takes over the role of chief executive at LAMP from Denise Chaney, who is retiring after working within the charity for 32 years.
