NCVO further strengthens board with two new trustees

NCVO has recruited two charity leaders to its board of trustees, further strengthening and diversifying the skills and experiences of its governing body.

Georgina Carr, chief executive of the Neurological Alliance, was elected at the end of 2022 and Chris Sherwood, CEO of the RSPCA, was appointed in January this year.

They join NCVO’s 12-member board, overseeing England’s largest membership organisation for charities, voluntary organisations, and community groups. Trustees serve a term of three years and can serve a maximum of two terms.

Georgina Carr has worked in the voluntary sector for nearly a decade and joined the Neurological Alliance as chief executive in January 2020.

Prior to her role at The Alliance, Georgina was with the MS Society for over six years, overseeing their work to campaign for improvements to multiple sclerosis treatment, care, and support. Georgina is also a volunteer with the London Inclusion Sports Academy and Opening Doors.

Chris Sherwood has been chief executive of the RSPCA, the world's oldest and largest animal protection charity, since August 2018. Prior to that Chris was CEO of Relate, the UK's leading relationship charity, having served previously as its director of policy and external affairs.

He has also led the ageing programme of work at Nesta, the UK's innovation agency, for three years. Chris has nearly 20 years of experience in the voluntary sector and is currently a trustee of the Centre for Aging Better.
