Sacro is delighted to announce the appointment of Sandy Cameron CBE as Chair of the Sacro Board of Trustees. Sandy is well-known and respected in the social care sector and brings a wealth of experience to the role of Chair.

Sacro’s Chief Executive, Tom Halpin said: “I am delighted to have Sandy Cameron at the helm for what is widely regarded as an upcoming period of exceptional challenges and opportunities for the voluntary sector and the justice system in Scotland. Sandy has already been a major asset to the Board and brings a deep understanding of social care and justice to the organisation. This appointment will reinforce Sacro’s status as an influential and active partner in Scotland’s justice system and I look forward to working with Sandy as Chair”.

Sandy Cameron replaces Esther Roberton who has held the Chair since 2010. Paying tribute to her, Tom Halpin went on to say: “Esther’s contribution to Sacro has been immense. She has presided over a period of real change – not just in the environment we work in – but the way we govern, manage and evaluate ourselves. Throughout all this, Esther made sure she kept in tune with the staff and volunteers who deliver our services and the many service users who benefit from this support. My sincere thanks go to Esther for her support and encouragement”.
