Respite care charity Revitalise has appointed a senior St Mungo’s Housing Association director to become its first director of people and culture.

Helen Giles will oversee human resources, organisational development strategy as well as the charity’s residential volunteering programme.

She joins from St Mungo’s Housing Association, where she was executive director of people and governance.

Her previous roles have included managing director of HR consultancy Real People and HR director at Broadway Homelessness Support.

“We are thrilled that Helen is joining the Revitalise team and at such a transitional time in our charity’s history,” said Revitalise chief executive Jan Tregelles.

“Our mission as an organisation has always centered around the wellbeing and happiness of our guests, and our people are a huge part of this.

“With Helen’s support, we will set out our new people strategy this year, ensuring that a positive, inclusive and unified working culture is at the heart of everything we do.”

Giles added: “I am inspired by the charity’s many years of providing fantastic respite holidays to disabled people and their carers and feel privileged to join the team.”
