New Head of the Social Exclusion Task Force

Naomi Eisenstadt, the director for the Social Exclusion Task Force, will be retiring at the end of September.

Campbell Robb, who currently manages the Office of the Third Sector, will also become responsible for the Social Exclusion Task Force following Naomi Eisenstadt’s retirement, as Director-General of the Office of the Third Sector and Social Exclusion.   

Chris Wormald, Director-General of the Public Sector Reform Group, said today:

“Naomi has been crucial in driving forward the excellent work of the Task Force, including the highly influential Families at Risk Review and the Socially Excluded Adults PSA. Both of these areas of work have demanded strong leadership and innovative thinking across Whitehall and beyond.”

Naomi has been director of SETF for nearly three years, having led early years and childcare work at DCSF the previous eight years.

Commenting on his appointment, Campbell Robb said:

"I am very excited to be taking on this new role. I have been very impressed by the excellent work the Social Exclusion Task Force does, tackling some of society’s most entrenched social problems. I hope to build even stronger links between the Task Force and the Office of the Third Sector.

“Both of these units not only require strong leadership across Whitehall, but also extensive networks outside of Government. I hope the positive relationships I already have will be of mutual benefit to both units.”
