Mary Jacques has been appointed as the new Chair of Rotherham Federation of Communities.

Mary is an established board member who has been involved with the Federation for 9 years, she is also Chair of Rotherham North Area Housing Panel and was previously the Chair of Blackburn Residents Association and a board member of 2010 Rotherham, the arms length housing company in the Borough.

Mary said I would like to say thank you to Pat Cahill our previous Chair for all his hard work and Lilian Shears for stepping in when Pat retired. As the Chair of the Federation I will try my best to steer the Charity in the right direction but I can't do that without the support of the board and staff”.

Chief Executive Officer Steve Ruffle said “I look forward to working with Mary over the next year, working with community groups and active community volunteers to make sure we continue to fulfil our charitable aims of strengthening communities in Rotherham”.
