Issues of funding levels, staff retention, home closures and hospital blocking relating to the care of people are high on the agenda of the newly appointed chairman of The Dorset Trust, a direct service organisation created by the Dorset local authority in 1991. Felicity Irwin, a long-standing member of the Board, combines extensive experience of community and charity work with commercial business, having been Chairman of the Wessex Branch of the Institute of Directors, chairman of Two Counties Radio and regional executive of the independent television company TVS. The Dorset Trust is the largest independent provider of personal care services in Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole, operating 18 residential homes and employing more than 1,000 full and part-time staff.
