Des Kelly is to retire from the post of executive director of the National Care Forum (NCF) , a position he has held since the organisation was formed over 12 years ago.

NCF chairman David Coull said the organisation, which represents not-for-profit care providers, appreciated the leadership, commitment and determination, Mr Kelly had bought to the role.

“NCF is clearly a grounded and well-respected membership body because of his influence in building strong foundations and so successfully championing our founding aim of improving quality in care services,” said Mr Coull.

“I know that Des wants the period until his retirement to be ‘business as usual’ in supporting and representing members and we look forward to our Annual Conference in May 2016 to celebrate his achievements.”

The process to recruit a successor has begun with sufficient time to ensure that the new executive director has an appropriate handover and the NCF has appointed a recruitment panel to oversee the selection process. The interviews will be held in January.
