Local man joins charity board

Scott Beat, husband and father of three from Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, has joined the board of national charity Barchester’s Charitable Foundation.

Currently working as regulation manager for Barchester Healthcare, Beat became a trustee on the board of the registered charity in February after he was shortlisted and voted in by the other members of the board.

Beat impressed the group with his lengthy career in the care sector as a former nurse, undertaking both senior clinical and managerial roles, as well as his training as a solicitor for the Supreme Court. His career also included being an inspector with the Care Quality Commission.

The registered charity helps older people and other adults with a disability across England, Scotland and Wales with a mission to make a difference to the lives of older people and other adults with a physical or mental disability; supporting practical solutions that lead to increased personal independence, self sufficiency and dignity.

Pete Calveley, CEO of Barchester Healthcare and chairman of the charity, says: “We’re very pleased to have Scott join us on the board. His experience, along with his passion for helping people will I’m sure, bring great insight to the charity and we’re looking forward to working with him on his exciting ideas.” 

Beat says: “I am very honoured to join the board for Barchester’s Charitable Foundation. The charity does fantastic work for people and communities all over the UK, and really makes a difference to those who can become disconnected with their neighbours. I am looking forward to putting my passion for care into action, and making a difference to those in need.”

Across 2018, Barchester’s Charitable Foundation awarded £150,000 in grants to 96 small community groups/local charities and 76 individuals helping reduce isolation and loneliness, promote group activities and improve people’s mobility, independence and quality of life.
