Caritas Anchor House has appointed Amanda Dubarry as its new chief executive.

She will be taking up the position at the Barking Road, Canning Town homelessness charity in March, having spent 22 years at youth charity Step by Step.

She is a member of the Board of Homeless Link, and is also a trustee of social enterprise Rushmoor Healthy Living.

She said: “After a long career with Step by Step, I feel I have achieved my ambitions for the charity, and now is the right time to take on this new opportunity.

“I relish this new challenge at Caritas Anchor House, a leading provider of accommodation and services to people who are homeless and disadvantaged, and look forward to working with the team to consolidate and scale up its offering to its residents and the wider community.”

Caritas Anchor House has also appointed Simon Hall as its new chair of trustees, succeeding Monsignor John Armitage after more than 20 years.
