Sarah Armstrong has joined the Ewing Foundation as Chief Executive Officer.
Sarah has a background in the charity sector. She has been a senior manager for a national charity leading in volunteering policy and practice, a regional lead for a charity raising aspirations for young people with a disability, and, in her previous role, was the Chief Executive of York CVS, an ambitious social action organisation.
‘There has been a common strand to all of my work, providing a voice for people who are not always heard,’ says Sarah. ‘Whether that’s children in the care system, young people with a disability or parents who are overwhelmed, my role has been to make sure they have the support they need to thrive.
‘With the number of deaf children in England rising, and the numbers of Teachers of the Deaf decreasing, this presents multiple challenges. I am ready to play an active role, working with the Ewing team of consultants and technicians, in meeting those challenges.’
