Matthew Skinner appointed as CEO of Care City

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Matthew Skinner as our new Chief Exec.

Matthew will lead Care City in its mission to secure a happier, healthier older age for East Londoners, through research, innovation and workforce development. Other responsibilities will include securing future investments for the business, leading relationships with key partners and continuing to raise the profile of Care City through generating a positive image of the contribution the work makes to the community it serves.

Matthew’s values and passion complement the existing Care City Team and with this strong background in public health, local government and consultancy, he is the leader Care City needs to deliver on its ambitious agenda. I am confident that Matthew’s proven ability to lead teams, create strategic clarity and drive social improvements, will deliver great results and opportunities for our East London community.

As Care City takes possession of its long-term office in Barking next Spring, Matthew will also be responsible for making a success of this home, using it to bring benefit to the local community and as a platform to showcase Care City’s work and mission.

Matthew joins the team from TPXimpact where, as Managing Director, he oversaw the delivery of complex and innovative organisational change projects for public sector clients that have created significant improvements for users of adult social care and health, children’s social care, housing and community services. Prior to that Matthew has held roles at FutureGov, Norfolk County and Lambeth Councils.

I am hugely excited about joining Care City. In my roles at TPXimpact and FutureGov I’ve overseen our work across government and health, ensuring we deliver lasting and tangible impact for citizens.

I’ve witnessed how poor and disjointed health provision, inadequate housing, the lack of community infrastructure, and access to good work are already deepening inequalities in our ageing society. I’m delighted to have the chance to get closer to the action again making a difference in health and care services.

Matt Skinner, CEO, Care City

Matthew will start in his new post in November 2022.
