Thank you Sharon for all your years of work

7 January 2019

After nearly 10 years of working for the NCF, and even longer involvement in the Board and membership of the organisation - Sharon Blackburn CBE - will be leaving us this Spring. Sharon has worked tirelessly for the NCF and its membership, showing unrivalled levels of passion, expertise and commitment and will be sorely missed by all within the NCF, and across the broader sector.

We will be saying a final goodbye to Sharon on the 28th February, and more details of this will follow, but do save the date in your diary.

Sharon will be moving to Brisbane, Australia. She will be joining Marcus Riley CEO and his team at BallyCara. She is very much looking forward to being part of their team and community and to contributing to the Aged Care sector in a new setting.

NCF is starting the recruitment for a new Policy Director, and details of the role can be found here
