The Ecumenical Council for Corporate Responsibility (ECCR) has appointed a new Executive Director.
ECCR is one of ACAT’s longstanding Partners in Ministry and exists to work with individual churches and church-goers to help them think about how the money they use in their daily lives can become a tool of their faith.
The charity has appointed Sarah Edwards who currently leads Tearfund’s Global Advocacy Team.
Sarah has many years’ experience working in advocacy and campaigning in the voluntary sector working on a range of human rights and global justice issues, including at Jubilee Debt Campaign, Anti-Slavery International, and Health Poverty Action.
ACAT Executive Officer Ashley Ellis said: “I would like to extend a very warm welcome to Sarah to her new position – and very much look forward to working with her going forward.
“Many ACAT members have had the opportunity to discover more about ECCR’s invaluable work at our conferences in recent years.”
Sarah lives in Barnet in North London with her husband and two children, where she is involved in teaching and preaching at her local church as well as a trustee in her local Foodbank.
She is also co-chair of Anvil Trust, a small charity seeking to create safe spaces for Christian learning and reflection.
Sarah will be joining ECCR at the end of April.
Janie Oliver, ECCR’s previous Executive Director, has been appointed Chief Financial Officer at Stewardship.
