Homelessness charity names new CEO

Emmaus UK, the support organisation for a federation of more than 30 Emmaus homelessness charities in the UK, has appointed Charlotte Talbott as its next chief executive.

She joins after a career in senior roles in homelessness, criminal justice and drug and alcohol recovery organisations.

This includes stints at drug and alcohol charity Lifeline and most recently as deputy chief executive of London based homelessness charity The Connection at St Martin-in-the-Field.

“Charlotte’s resilience and dynamism were clear throughout the selection process, and we were impressed by her enthusiasm for co-production and partnership working,” said Emmaus UK chair Susan Brooksbank-Taylor.

“She is driven by social impact and social values and has a keen focus on raising the voice of disadvantaged people. She has a clear understanding of the pivotal role that Emmaus plays in supporting people that are socially excluded.

"I am delighted to welcome Charlotte to the role and look forward to working with her to continue to develop Emmaus in the UK.”

Talbott added: “Having worked for many years in homelessness and drug and alcohol services I understand and am committed to the importance of whole person recovery.

“I know from experience that people need more than just accommodation.”

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.
