Farewell to Joan Featured

“It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of the charities’ founding Chief Executive, Joan Roscow, MBE, with Joan losing her battle with cancer on 12th April 2016.  Joan was Chief Executive of the charity until October 1997, when she retired and moved down south.  Fiercely passionate about supporting older people and visionary in her development of services, Joan led the charity to set up services like the Healthy Living Centre at the St Thomas’s church long before Ageing Well and Healthy Living activities were recognised and accepted as the way forward in promoting health and independent living.  Joan will be fondly remembered and missed by many but her legacy will live on.  Our deepest condolences to her family.”

Linda Chivers, Chief Executive
