The search has begun for a new chief executive for a charity that supports people with drug and alcohol issues in Norfolk and Suffolk.
Rosalie Weetman, who has held the post at The Matthew Project since February 2012, has resigned after moving to Derbyshire for personal and family commitments. The charity has its head office in St Stephens Road, Norwich, but operates across Norfolk as well as having an under 18 service in Suffolk.
The Matthew Project has grown substantially over the last two years, increasing staff numbers to 120 in April 2013 after winning a tender to deliver adult services across Norfolk as part of the Norfolk Recovery Partnership. Ms Weetman said: “It has been both a pleasure and a privilege to lead the organisation over the past two years. The Matthew Project is a dynamic, thriving, local charity, and its long-held ethos of “going the extra mile” for its service users in recovery is now recognised as a highly effective approach to service delivery.
