She has worked across the UK including as a senior manager in local authorities, chief executive of a government agency, headed up a charity for refugees and asylum seekers in Yorkshire and then became head of a UK-wide membership body before spending the last few years as executive director for the devolved nations with the Chartered Institute of Housing.

Mauger-Thompson takes over from Tom Halpin who has been with Sacro for 10 years.

She said: “Tom and his team do incredible work to change people’s lives and build safer communities. I am looking forward to making sure that continues to happen, working in partnership with government, public and third sector bodies locally and nationally to deliver outcomes that prevent and reduce offending and keep people safer.

"Sacro is all about people centred services and I believe passionately that this is the way to change things for the better.”

Tom Halpin added: “I am delighted to welcome Annie and truly wish everyone associated with Sacro continued success under her leadership. I am confident that the strengths and experiences Annie now brings will serve Sacro well going forward.”
