Circles UK welcomes Maxine Myatt as our interim Chief Executive

Maxine takes over from Liz Brown who will join Meningitis Now as their new Chief Executive in April. 

Maxine has extensive experience in the Criminal Justice and voluntary sectors. She has worked with those convicted of sex offences, as a senior Probation Service executive, practitioner and consultant. Maxine will work with us for six months while we recruit her successor.

Circles UK will continue in its vital work to support the delivery of Circles to vulnerable, high-risk sex offenders returning to the community to achieve its vision of no more victims. Circles UK has been awarded £2m by the Big Lottery Fund for the geographical expansion of Circles into new areas across the country and is now well underway with the implementation of an additional 188 Circles by 2019.
