New Appointment: Introducing Gill Birrell, Children and Young People Lead.
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Gill Birrell, to the new position of Children and Young People Lead. Gill will be introducing our new service to provide support for children and young people affected by cancer – either through their own diagnosis, or that of someone close to them.
Gill has almost 30 years experience of supporting children and young people in a range of different settings and says, ‘It is a real privilege to be appointed to this role for such a brilliant organisation and I am committed to working with others to create an amazing service supporting local children and young people who are affected by cancer. I don’t underestimate the challenge but with the support of the existing team and the community we can make it happen. With the participation of children and young people, we will develop and deliver a service with care, compassion and kindness at the heart of everything we do.’
Welcome to team ACS Gill and thank you to our young ambassadors who have helped campaign for the creation of this service.
