The Chair of the Council for 2018/19 is Councillor Maggie Hulcoop who represents the Harlow Common Ward.
The Vice Chair of the Council for 2018/19 is Councillor Clive Souter who represents the Sumners & Kingsmoor Ward.
The Chair is the ceremonial head of Harlow Council. The Chair plays an important civic role in engaging with the people of Harlow. This includes attending community events.
The Chair is elected each year at the annual Council meeting. For the year of office, the Chair is politically neutral.
The Chair’s chosen charities for 2018/19 are Streets2Homes and the Dolphin Children's Ward at Princess Alexandra Hospital.
- Streets2Homes is a charity based in Harlow, Essex which seeks to reach out to and help homeless people. The charity provides a safe and friendly environment in which they can assist the homeless in a number of ways, including finding accommodation. The charity manages a day centre, which provides a place to access housing advice, social contact, training sessions, employment advice, health services, washing facilities, food, clothing, general guidance and support. They cannot do all the work themselves, but they have links with a wide range of agencies and organisations that they can contact to try to get the appropriate type of assistance to meet the needs of their clients.
Dolphin Ward is the children’s ward at Princess Alexandra Hospital. It provides care for children who require hospital treatment from the age of 0 to 16 years old. The charity supporting Dolphin Ward is there to help provide additional support to the ward in achieving an outstanding patient experience for all children and their families. The charity is currently fundraising to replace all of their parent beds from older ‘put up’ beds to more comfortable reclining bed chairs. This will at least provide the parent of their unwell child with a more comfortable stay, during what is already a very stressful situation.
