Avante Care & Support is a registered Charity providing Care & Support across Kent, Bexley and Greenwich. Like all charities there is a Board of Non-Executive Trustees that oversees Avante Care & Support’s charitable aims, objectives and the strategic management of the business.
The Chairman of the Board is Peter Smallridge CBE. Peter Smallridge has a national reputation and profile built as a Director of Social Services in Warwickshire and Kent bringing experience of managing large organisations, and of strategic planning and commissioning. Peter was awarded a CBE for services to Social Services in 1995.
Peter has over 10 years’ experience as Chair of a Health Authority and a Primary Care Trust, and over 6 years as Chair of a Mental Health Partnership Trust. He is a Trustee of Henry Smiths Charity and is the Deputy Chair of the NHS Health & Europe Centre, a social enterprise that recently merged with Kent County Council’s European Unit.
There are also nine additional Trustees, each with a wealth of knowledge and experience, who meet bi-monthly to review all aspects of the running and management of Avante Care & Support’s services.
