Salutem Care and Education has promoted a dedicated professional, with more than 25 years’ worth of experience, to director of its children’s services division.

Karen Jackson joined Salutem, a leading residential and social care provider with 130 services nationwide, as a regional director in adult services.

After a successful spell as interim divisional director, Karen earned the permanent promotion to divisional director, overseeing the development of children’s services at Salutem.

Within this division, Salutem Care and Education provides both children and young people with residential and educational support.

Karen leads the team ensuring that staff, children, and young people are properly supported to achieve their goals and aspirations.

Her promotion follows Salutem reconfiguring its business framework into four categories – adult, children, supported living, and education.

Karen said: “Since being a divisional director, everyone at Salutem has been very supportive in helping me smoothly transition into my new role.

“It’s nice to work with people from a different division and meet other hard-working members of staff, who are committed to working with children and young people.

“We have a very committed and passionate group, who are very supportive of the children and young people and I’m looking forward to seeing this division grow.” 

John Godden MBE, CEO at Salutem said: “In her short time as interim director, Karen has shown leadership and dedication, which, combined with her experience, makes her the perfect fit to take on the permanent role as director in children’s services.
