UCanDoIT Welcomes New CEO

Samantha Barber has been appointed CEO of UCanDoIT. She joins from veterans’ charity Stoll where she was in charge of fundraising.

As Director of External Relations at Stoll, Barber led a team of nine and took the charity from an annual fundraising income of £200,000 to £12 million over five years. In her 20-year career in the charity sector she has also held roles with Shelter and the Social Care Institute for Excellence.

Samantha said: “Technology is a great enabler – if you have the equipment and know how to use it. Given the barriers to employment and social exclusion that some disabled people experience, the service UCanDoIT provides is vital in helping more and more disabled people lead independent lives. I am looking forward to working with colleagues, tutors and users to widen the reach of our service across the country and help ensure more and more disabled people take the steps to being tech independent.”
