16 August 2023

Annie O'Neill Fundraising and Relationship ManagerChildren’s charity and leading UK voluntary adoption agency, Adoption Matters, has announced the appointment of Ann (Annie) O’Neill as their new Fundraising and Relationship Manager.

Annie joined the charity in July 2023, after a previous career spanning 36 years in the field of commercial business rates and her new role is one close to her heart.

Annie commented: “This a complete change for me, but one that I have welcomed. As an adopter myself, adopting my two children ten years ago, I can bring my own personal experiences to the role. Adoption is so close to my own heart as it enabled my own dream of having a family.”

Adoption Matters, who have recently acclaimed their fifth outstanding Ofsted rating in a row, are launching a new not-for-profit fostering agency, Foster Care Matters, in early 2024, so it is an exciting time to become part of their team.

“We are absolutely delighted that Annie has joined us. Annie will work to raise vital funds and build relationships with our corporate partners and supporters for our charity.

“With Annie on board, we have a wonderful opportunity to grow our income and support many more children and their families.”
