The Association of Jewish Refugees (AJR) is delighted to congratulate Carol Hart who has been awarded in the Queen’s New Year Honours.

Carol Hart, AJR’s Head of Volunteer and Community Services, receives an MBE for services to the Jewish community during the Covid-19 pandemic. Carol has worked for the AJR for 15 years managing a team of coordinators and over 350 volunteers. Since the beginning of lockdown Carol has put in place new services to ensure the well-being of AJR’s members including regular phone-calls, letter writing, socially-distanced garden visits and online support groups for carers.

Carol said, “After the shock of hearing about the Honour, my feeling is of immense gratitude that I have the opportunity to work for a superb charity (AJR) which supports inspirational members alongside a team of dedicated staff, volunteers and trustees.”
