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.”
