We are on the hunt for a new CEO.

 We are on the hunt for a new CEO. Former CEO Andy Campbell has left Rainbows to return to a career in IT.

Until the position has been filled, we are delighted to welcome Mandy Ashton OBE as interim CEO.

Mandy has over 36 years of experience working in health care. Starting out as a nurse, she has worked as a leader at Board level in all types of health settings as well as leading the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at De Monfort University.

Mandy said: “I am looking forward to leading the team at Rainbows until the appointment of the new permanent CEO. Rainbows has a wonderful workforce and I feel very proud to have this opportunity.”

Dianne Postle, Chair of Trustees at Rainbows, added: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Andy, who has given many years of support to Rainbows. I am also delighted to welcome Mandy as our interim CEO. “Few of us can begin to understand how it feels to be a child or young adult with a life-limiting condition – or a member of their family. But we can all understand that they deserve the very best care and support. Here at Rainbows, that’s exactly what we aim to provide for children and young adults across the East Midlands. Working within a purpose built hospice and a growing community-based service, our team of staff delivers individualised palliative and respite care at a time when families need us the most.

“There are very few jobs like this one, so it will take someone very special to succeed in delivering the loving, compassionate care that we’re renowned for. It’s an exciting time to be joining Rainbows as we have ambitious plans to extend our services.”
