We are delighted to announced that Nora Corkery has joined the charity in this newly created strategic role, dedicated to generating new opportunities for the organisation.

Nora comes with a wealth of experience, having come from the national charity Citizens Advice, where she managed Devon Welfare Rights Unit and co-ordinated the Devon Advice Network and was engaged in managing strategic and business development, public, partner and customer relations and financial management and fundraising.

Nora joins just as the charity prepares to launch the campaign for their Rural Futures Conference, which has been running for over 50 years.
This year entitled More than a Place to Live, the event is being hosted by The Met Office on the 1st October.

Nora says “I am excited to start a new challenge within Devon Communities Together and look forward to working with the team, uncovering new opportunities that will support the organisation’s mission. I am fortunate to be joining such a respected charity that prides itself on helping rural communities thrive.”

Chief Executive, Elaine Cook said “Nora’s wealth of experience and industry knowledge has already made her a key addition to the Devon Communities Together family. We view her appointment as a sign of our commitment to adapting to the changing economic climate that has affected funding in recent years. With new innovations and approaches we hope to sustain and grow our income streams in order to continue helping communities to help themselves. It is very fortunate that we were able to find someone of Nora’s calibre to fulfil this role. I’m confident that Nora will play a key role in providing and implementing high quality solutions for our organisation providing opportunities that will support growth while remaining on message and true to our mission.”

Nora officially joins the team on the 18th May. Please contact her via email at [email protected]
