Celebrating Women: International Women’s Day 2024

We are marking International Women’s Day by celebrating the extraordinary grandmothers, mothers, daughters, colleagues, friends, teachers and public figures of the past, present and future who have impacted our lives, however big or small.

Avery is proud to have thousands of inspirational women living and working in our homes and forming part of our Senior Leadership and Executive Teams, which support our care communities. Chief Executive Officer Lorna Rose and Sarah Palmer, Quality Director, are two such trailblazers. Together, they lead our organisation in delivering the highest quality of care to our residents, creating meaningful lives together.

Lorna Rose, Chief Executive Officer

“My career in the care sector spans over 25 years. As a qualified nurse, wife, mum, and daughter, family and work bring me happiness, meaning and purpose. I am proud to work collaboratively with our strong women leaders throughout our wonderful organisation; it is an incredible place to work and live! I love to see people learn, young ladies start to believe in themselves, develop, grow and achieve, and that’s what’s so special about this sector: we support people to make a difference to people’s lives in every part of our organisation.”

Sarah Palmer, Quality Director

“I qualified as a nurse in 1996 and started my career as a carer in an older person’s home. Before joining Avery in 2023, my career journey incorporated the NHS and the criminal justice system before settling into adult social care in 2015. My motivation is to empower colleagues to deliver our vision and values, enabling them to be the very best they can be. I am privileged to lead a highly skilled and competent team driven by the same purpose and values. Away from Avery, I am a daughter, a wife, and a mother of 2 older boys, 18 and 22, who are now finding their own way in the world and have a house full of dogs!”

Happy International Women’s Day. There is no limit to what we can accomplish.
