Angela Boxall

Care England, the representative body for independent adult social care, has appointed Majesticare’s chief executive Angela Boxall as its new chair, succeeding Avnish Goyal, chairman of Hallmark Luxury Care Homes, who has held the post for the past nine years and will remain on the policy board.

Boxall has knowledge and experience of the social care sector, having served in various roles from direct care, operations, and executive leadership. She is involved with several organisations and charities, such as Championing Social Care and Access Social Care, and various initiatives across the sector.

Boxall said: “As the new chair of Care England, I see not just a seat at the table but a responsibility to steer the course of positive change within the sector. This is an exciting opportunity for me to work with an organisation that is committed and passionate about the continuous growth of the sector for those that live and work in it.”

Professor Martin Green, chief executive of Care England said: “In the year of a general election, it is now more important than ever that social care remains a key component of the public and political agenda. At this crucial juncture, Care England moves from strength to strength with a new chair and board of trustees. There is an overwhelming sense of optimism, to champion change in the sector- highlighting the dedication of those who work in the care, and achieve tangible changes to help providers continue to deliver high-quality care.”

Care England’s new trustees are:

Joanne Balmer, chief executive, Oakland Care.

Aneurin Brown, managing director, Hallmark Care Homes.

Russell Brown, chief executive, Shaw Healthcare (Group).

Simon McCall, commercial director, Barchester Healthcare.

Jake Rollin, director of commissioned care and commercial support, HC-One.

They will join existing trustees: James Allen, chief executive of National Care Group, and Vishal Shah, founder and managing director of Banyan Care Group.

Goyal added “It has been an immense honour to serve as the chair of Care England for the last nine years, where our collective efforts have significantly contributed to the advancement and betterment of care services. During my tenure, we have navigated challenges and celebrated numerous achievements, always keeping the welfare and dignity of those we serve at the forefront. I would like to thank the Care England team led by Martin Green for all the support over this time.

“As I pass the baton to Angela, I am filled with optimism and confidence. Angela brings a wealth of experience and a fresh perspective that will undoubtedly steer Care England towards new heights. Her commitment and vision are vital for our continued success, and I look forward to seeing the organisation thrive under her capable leadership and continue to make a difference and shape social care into the future.”
