Rachel Chapman commented:

‘I am thrilled to have been asked to lead this amazing organisation. The Matthew Project plays a vital role in bringing hope to many of the most marginalised people in our community and I look forward to helping increase the amount we can do. 
‘The current economic pressure means we are seeing ever increasing demand for all of our services. At the same time we are striving to secure the all-important funding to enable us meet these demands.’
