After many years with Ray Tovey at the helm, Reclaim moves to a new era as Joanna Taylor takes over as the new CEO. Her wealth of experience with Reclaim ensures familiarity with staff, volunteers and all the details of the day to day running of the charity, as well handling the major contracts and partnerships that have been formed over the years. Joanna has been involved with the charity since before it launched having been part of a working party looking into how it could be set up back in the mid 1990’s, but formally came on board as part of the management committee in 1998. She originally trained as a solicitor and worked in private practice before moving into local government first in Hampshire and then in Dorset. She joined Reclaim as Development Manager in 2007.
