Doreen Woodward

Doreen has worked for over 30 years in senior strategic leadership roles in Charities, working with many different vulnerable client groups, and developing innovative services tailored to their needs.  Doreen has extensive experience of successfully developing innovative housing schemes with support services, reshaping organisations to ensure future sustainability and foster growth and development opportunities.

Doreen is passionate about making a real difference and impact to people’s lives and ensuring they have the support and quality homes to live fulfilling lives in their own community.  Doreen was delighted to join such a historic charity as Tiverton Almshouse Trust in September 2019 as their CEO as it is a valuable and much needed charity for local people, providing quality homes for older people with warden support. Its additional portfolio of other residential and commercial units in Tiverton, that it leases makes it a complex charity whose focus remains on improving the quality of life for its older residents.

“It is a privilege to lead the Tiverton Almshouse Trust and to continue to build on its successful history with such a dedicated and committed staff team and a board of volunteer Directors”.
