Ambient Support recruits regional manager

Will Thornton

Will Thornton has been appointed regional manager for Lincolnshire and the Midlands at Ambient Support.

With analysis and development experience, Thornton’s appointment will aim to drive the charity’s service provision across the region as it begins a five-year strategy.

He has held senior roles across east and north London, including as a commissioner, and he has worked for Midlands-based charities, most recently for Blind Veterans UK.

‘It feels great to be part of the change to help navigate and refocus operationally,’ said Thornton, who will be overseeing more than 100 staff and 40 services, which include older people settings and supported living schemes for adults with a learning disability.

Mark Milton, Ambient chief executive, added: ‘Attracting top talent like Will is critical as we deliver our strategy and accelerate our position as provider of choice. He brings a wealth of experience and his passion and devotion to care over the years speaks volumes.’
