Sonia Mangan joined the team of staff, volunteers and Trustees in June 2016.
Sonia is not new to Voluntary Sector leadership.
She has been Chief Executive Officer for an Age UK in South Lakeland in Cumbria for eleven years, led a small team working with people with sight problems in the same area and latterly led a team of 200 staff working across Cumbria with people with a range of mental health problems.
Her value is to make a difference and Sonia has a lot of experience of the needs and issues older people navigate as they move through their later life.
Sonia completed her Masters in Dementia Studies with the University of Stirling in 2015. She started her career as a nurse and worked in NHS management and private sector care home management.
Sonia has three (adult) children and has recently moved to Hove.
