Health charity names new CEO

Metabolic Support UK has named Kirsty Hoyle as its next chief executive.

Hoyle joined the health charity this week from accessibility charity Transport for All, where she held the same role.

“An experienced charity leader and strategist, Kirsty has spent her career raising awareness of issues that impact on people’s lives through integrating lived experience, public policy and service delivery,” said Metabolic Support UK.

Metabolic Support UK is in its 40th year and was formerly known as Climb. It supports people who have inherited metabolic disorders.



“I look forward to working closely with our Board of Trustees, staff and volunteers to realise our aspirations for the charity and to continue to raise standards for our patients and their families,” said Hoyle.

“The work we do is fundamental to improving the lived experience of people with inherited metabolic disorders and I am delighted to have this unique opportunity to serve our communities.”

The charity’s chair Dr Elin Haf Davies added: “The world as we know it has changed considerably in the wake of Covid-19 and we are excited that Kirsty will guide us to the new world in a way that addresses the ever-changing needs of our communities and our voice in the eco-system.”

The importance of the ‘S’ in ‘ESG’
In this episode, Lauren Weymouth is joined by Ketan Patel, equities fund manager at EdenTree, to delve into the issue of social investment and why that all-important ‘S’ in ESG is more relevant now than ever before. The social element of ESG often gets forgotten when thinking about investing in more ethical and sustainable ways. But, after a challenging year for all areas of society, social injustice has been highlighted, and there’s a much greater need for charities to put people at the heart of their investment decisions.
