Our New CEO
Hello! My name is Ruth Barror and I am looking forward to joining
the Post Polio Support Group as CEO in January 2013.
Over the past 20 years, I have led three voluntary organisations: MRCS (now Relationships Ireland), GROW - The World Community Mental Health Movement and, most recently, ACCORD Marriage Care.
Even though the causes underpinning these organisations differ from PPSG they all have at their centre a commitment to the well-being, care and support of those who both need and provide their services.
The shortage of adequate resources is a feature common to all organisations in the voluntary sector but my experience to date has been that the energy and vision of the members of these organisations overcome such challenges time and again. They surpass expectations and create new ways of thriving in the face of adversity, and opportunity.
I am looking forward to getting to know you over the coming months and to hearing what your vision for PPSG is, where your priorities lie and what your ideas are on how we can extend and improve the service we provide to polio survivors around the country.
I hope that, working together, our combined experience will contribute to the development of PPSG and the realisation of our goals.
In the meantime, I wish you and yours a joyful Christmas and a peaceful prosperous 2013.
