Former Young Women’s Trust CEO takes temporary charge at Centre for Ageing Better

Centre for Ageing Better has appointed former Young Women’s Trust CEO Carole Easton as interim chief executive.

Easton takes over from Anna Dixon, who announced she is leaving earlier this year, until a permanent replacement can be found.

After leading the Young Women’s Trust between 2013 and 2019, Easton has remained in the voluntary sector as a consultant and interim chief executive.

Over the last two years her roles have included interim joint chief executive of the British Lung Foundation as well as at Refuge.

She also sits on the board of Advance, which supports women who have experienced domestic abuse and at risk of offending.

“I am delighted to be given this opportunity to lead Ageing Better during this interim period, said Easton.

“I am excited to put my experience to good use and help the organisation prepare for a new permanent chief executive.

“The work of the Centre has demonstrated the benefits and the importance to individuals and to society of ensuring that people can have a good later life. I am keen to support and sustain the excellent work of the charity whose mission is to guarantee that a good later life is an aspiration that can be shared by everyone in the UK.”

Easton was handed an OBE in 2017 for services to young people.
