BCCS appoints new director

The Brentwood Catholic Children’s society has appointed Bernadette Fisher as its new director. Bernadette will take over at the end of March when current director, Steven Webb, takes up his new post as director of development at the Diocese of Brentwood. Bernadette is a parishioner at the Most Holy Redeemer Church in Billericay and has worked in education in a variety of roles for nearly 30 years.

She says: “I feel very privileged and honoured to have been appointed as director of this incredibly worthwhile charity. Brentwood Catholic Children’s Society is an exemplar organisation and highly regarded. There is a need to preserve and build on this excellent reputation. As director I am looking forward to working with Bishop Alan, the staff and trustees to uphold, sustain and develop bccs’ current vision and services.

“The wellbeing and dignity of the child has always been pivotal to my work and my Catholic faith is at the heart of my motivation to serve children and their families.”

Outgoing director Steven Webb comments: “Bernadette is a great appointment and having had the opportunity to get to know her over recent weeks the trustees and I are confident that she is absolutely the right person to direct the next chapter in the bccs story. It is lovely to leave knowing that this much loved charity is in good hands. Please pray for Bernadette and the work of bccs as she settles in.”
