“I’m passionate about improving the lives of young people and it’s a privilege to be joining such a distinguished organisation. In a time of increasing need and demand for services and support for young people in London, and cuts to funding for these services, the great contribution of London Youth to the sector and the lives of young Londoners are needed now more than ever. I’m impressed with their track record of work with young people and member clubs and look forward to joining and adding my contribution.”
Rosemary Watt-Wyness, Chief Executive at London Youth, said:
