Charlie Adan today (10 August 2016) starts in her post as the new Chief Executive for the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, following the ‘resignation’ (at a cost of £250,000 to the taxpayer) of former CEO, Bruce McDonald.

Ms Adan was previously Chief Executive of the Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils. There, she was part of Suffolk’s Public Services senior leadership team, which led whole system public service reform in the county with other CEOs from local government as well health, police and voluntary and community services.

Kevin Davis, Leader of The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames said: 

“Charlie has real passion for resident engagement and understands that they come first. She brings a savvy commercial head and social heart which will help secure Kingston’s reputation as being the best place to live and work. This is an exciting new chapter for Kingston.”

Children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities in Kingston and Richmond have been given recognition for their accomplishments at an awards ceremony.

The awards run by Kingston and Richmond’s social enterprise Achieving for Children (AfC) took place at Clarendon School in Hampton on 20 January. The event is aimed at celebrating the achievements of local children and young people and their impact they have had in inspiring other children, young people and their families.

People from across the two boroughs were invited to nominate an individual or group of children and young people they felt had done something special under four different categories; ‘impact’, ‘inspiration’,‘personal achievement’ and ‘recognition’.

The AfC team received over 100 entries for judging. Nominations were judged by panels made up of a parent, professional and a young person. Twenty nominations were selected as outstanding by the panels.

Cllr Richard Hudson, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Children’s Social Care and Health at Kingston Council, said:

“Having an awards ceremony to recognise the hard work of these individuals is a fantastic idea and are a great way of helping those with special educational needs gain self-confidence. I am confident that they are hugely appreciated by those who receive an award.”
