Change at the helm

By Lucy Summers | Posted: Tuesday November 6, 2018

Nicola Taylor, who has been the Director of Anglican Family Care for the past 15 years, is retiring on 14 December, 2018.

On announcing her retirement, Niccy said, "I want to acknowledge not only the hard work of the staff of the agency, but the amazing support we have received from donors and supporters over the years. They enable us to do the work we do with Otago families and their support has huge impact."

The Board of Trustees have appointed Mike Williams (above) as the new General Manager of Anglican family Care, effective from Niccy's retirement date.

Mike has worked as Anglican Family Care's Business Support Manager for the last four months. He has been involved in the social services sector in Dunedin since 2001, firstly in community mental health and further in NGO management. He managed Corpac Trust, a budgeting service for people living with mental health issues, between 2004 and 2017, and more recently Prisoners’ Aid and Rehabilitation Society (Otago) 2017-2018 before moving to Anglican Family Care. Mike holds a degree in management and lives with his wife and two children in Dunedin.
