AFTER FIVE months as interim CEO of learning disability charity Langdon, Neil Taylor has been given the job on a permanent basis, describing it as “a privilege”.
Mr Taylor previously spent 28 years with Jewish Care, half of them as director of care and community services. He is the vice-chair of both Skills for Care — which promotes workforce development in adult social care — and Waverley School for Special Needs.
Langdon chair Nigel Henry said Mr Taylor’s “wealth of experience in social care, the voluntarily sector and the Jewish community make him excellently placed to lead Langdon into the future. We are confident that Neil’s vision of an excellent care organisation with a diverse offer for members will be realised.”
For his part, Mr Taylor recognises Langdon’s “potential to develop. For the past five months, I have seen the really positive impact the organisation can have on enabling young people and adults with learning disabilities and their families to live independent and enterprising lives. “As a parent of a daughter with a severe learning disability, I know only too well the essential role organisations such as Langdon play in the whole life of members and their families.”
