New Chair of the Board of Directors for OPFS

New Chair of the Board of Directors for OPFS

OPFS are pleased to welcome Jen Paice, Chief Executive of the tenancy deposit scheme, SafeDeposits Scotland, as our new Chair of the Board of Directors.

Jennifer Paice, Chair of OPFS Board of Directors, with her familyShe brings a wealth of experience from her many years in the business sector combined with an insight into the charitable sector from her time chairing a Coporate Social Responsibility board. She’s also a single parent of two boys and understands many of the issues that single parents face as well as the difficulties of juggling work and children.

Jennifer joins the charity at a challenging time for single parents. We find ourselves in a perfect storm of funding cuts, austerity measures, sanctions and negative attitudes towards single parents which are pushing ever more one parent families into poverty.

“I’d like to thank Ann Kelsey for her efforts as interim chair and look forward helping the charity on its mission to ensure that more single parents have the support, contacts and confidence needed to play a full part in Scotland’s economic and social life.”
 – Jen Paice
