A warm welcome to Chris Mikata-Pralat our new CEO!

We all continue to experience exceptional times and with the extended lockdown ahead of us we must prepare for longer term hardships. As a team we are more determined than ever to keep up the hard work to support the incredible work that you and your teams are doing. 

But amidst this testing lockdown we have some positive news to share, we are really excited to introduce our new CEO Chris Mikata-Pralat!

Chris has lived in Southwark since 2007 and so is very familiar with our diverse and bustling borough. He has worked previously with one of our members, Age UK Lewisham and Southwark, as manager of the Stones End Day Centre. Chris is also currently a trustee of the local charity ‘Southwark Charities’.

Chris says,

“I am very proud of the response that the local voluntary sector, our members, have given to the outbreak of the coronavirus and I look forward to working together with them to the benefit of all local charities, groups and residents”.



As a team we would also like to say a big thank you to Deborah, our Interim CEO, for supporting us over the last few months. Deborah will be working closely with Chris, alongside the whole team, to bring him up to speed.


Chris's email is: chris@communitysouthwark.org and his direct line is: 020 735 87251.


It’s not an easy time to be taking the reins of an organisation, but we know you will all join us in welcoming and supporting Chris as he finds his feet.
