MENDIP CAB has appointed a new chief officer in Stuart Chadbourne who has taken over following the retirement of Sonia Pike.
Stuart brings more than 20 years of senior management experience in the voluntary sector in both England and Wales. He has managed bureaus in both urban and rural locations. Aside from CAB, he has worked in the disability field with organisations such as Arthritis Care and the Alzheimer's Society and also worked with ex-offenders and people with mental ill-health.
More than 100 local people volunteer for Mendip CAB and Stuart says he recognises the value of this to the area.
"The power of volunteering to change people's lives for the better makes its mark on me daily," said Stuart. "Volunteers and volunteering is at the heart of everything I've achieved in my professional career. The CAB is nothing without its volunteers.

"Working with my very able staff team and the board here at Mendip CAB, our aspiration is to become even better at what we already do very well; taking high-quality help and advice into the very heart of our communities.
Stuart and his wife have moved from rural mid-Wales to Dinder.
Malcolm Williams, chair of Mendip CAB's Board of Trustees said: "We are extremely fortunate to have attracted such an experienced campaigner as Stuart. He has lots of new ideas and I particularly look forward to seeing how our service can be enhanced to reach out more to young people, and some of the problems they face."
