Nursing and care group BCOP has appointed Helen Gore as its chief executive officer.

The West Midlands-based charity provides nursing and residential care and support, as well as sheltered housing for older people in Birmingham. Established in 1946, it used to be known as Birmingham Council for Old People.


Gore’s most recent position was head of operations and compliance with Gloucester Charities Trust. Before this, she was village manager for ExtraCare Charitable Trust and worked for supported housing providers on business and capital development programmes.

She has also managed a portfolio of build and refurbishment projects across the country.

‘I am very pleased to be able to bring my mix of skills and experience to BCOP and I’m excited by the challenges ahead. BCOP is built on sound values of serving older people and we are ready to strengthen our existing services and grow to meet the needs of our communities.’

Carter Schwartz’s head of practice Linda Stock advised on the appointment.
