We are very sorry to announce that Aisling Burnand our CEO has recently been diagnosed with cancer and will be taking a leave of absence from AMRC with immediate effect, to enable her to focus on her treatment plan. Our thoughts and good wishes are with Aisling. 

Hilary Reynolds has been asked by the Board to be the interim CEO until the end of May at which point we very much hope to be welcoming Aisling back. 

Hilary was until recently a member-elected trustee of AMRC (whilst at the Stroke Association) and has been part of the AMRC leadership team for the past three months particularly supporting our work with Government around our sector response to the pandemic.

Carol Bewick, Director of Membership Engagement and Communications and Nisha Tailor, Director of Policy and Public Affairs will continue to provide their exceptional professional expertise and people management to drive the delivery of the strategy to support all our members, and we together are determined to provide leadership and support for our people and to our members to make Aisling proud.
