Congratulations to Joanne Watters, who took the role of CEO of Father Hudson’s Care on Saturday 1 June, following the retirement of former CEO Andy Quinn. As the the social care agency of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham, Father Hudson’s Care is involved in numerous projects throughout the Midlands.

Joanne has a passion for supporting individuals and families who are marginalised and in need. In 2023 she led, together with Fr Michael White, the successful capital fundraising appeal which enabled the charity to double its homelessness provision working, based at St Catherine of Siena Church in Birmingham.

Joanne said, ‘I am proud as a Catholic to be the first female CEO for such an important and long-standing charity. I am committed to continuing the mission of our founder Fr George Vincent Hudson, working in partnership with the Archdiocese, parishes, schools and supporters.’
