Action4Youth Board of Trustees
Action4Youth benefits from the huge range of knowledge and experience brought by our trustees…
When the opportunity arose at Action4Youth, I recognised a team with very similar vales and expectations. I am very proud to be a part of such a passionate group dedicated to the development of a new generation of young leaders.
As a youngster I benefited tremendously from the extra curricular activities outside of the academic. These were very similar to the A4Y offerings. It served me so well in making me a well rounded person to face the challenges of life.
In A4Y I saw a well motivated team and organisation with the belief to give youngsters of every ability and background an opportunity to build the skills needed to fulfil their full potential. It is so pleasing to be part of this team to be able help others by using the knowledge from my work and life experiences.

I have always had a keen interest in youth development and education, from interning with AED (Academy for Educational Development) in Washington D.C. and founding ACE (Academics Creates Excellence) programme at Yale University that was focused on reducing truancy in primary and secondary schools in New Haven, Connecticut to being a Women’s Board Member of the Children in Crisis Charity founded by Sarah, Duchess of York and most recently joining the Board of Action4Youth. I am passionate about the next generation, with a particular interest in mental health, mentoring and developing youth career opportunities.

I am passionate about the importance of education and the development of young people and am inspired by the incredible work that our fine charity does. I am also a school board governor and educational volunteer.
I have three grown up children of my own and we all love sport and the great outdoors.
I have worked across different sectors over the past 20 years and I’m now at Octopus Investments, a financial services business that invests in sectors including renewable energy, small businesses and healthcare.
I’m a passionate believer in the need to help children from different backgrounds achieve their potential (and supporting their mental health in particular) and I’m delighted that Action4Youth have given me the opportunity to contribute to their great work.

He is married with two grown up children and likes to travel and take on adventure challenges.
I was attracted to Action4Youth because of their ambition, values and the team who are totally focused on helping young people reach their full potential and thrive in their lives. I am proud to play my part in contributing to their success.
As a parent of 2 boys, I am very aware of the need to ensure that young people are given opportunities to develop confidence, resilience and a growth mindset, to help prepare them for a successful future.
Action4Youth does phenomenal work inspiring young people of all abilities, and from all backgrounds, to develop these skills and I am proud to be involved with such a great team.
I have close to thirty years investment experience and am a Chartered Accountant. Having brought up three children, I have become very aware of the the many hurdles now facing young adults. I have been involved with two charities, Trust for London and Action Medical, who provide support for the young and I now look forward to helping Action4Youth where possible.
Action4Youth is committed to eliminating discrimination in any form. The composition of our Board reflects this commitment.
Action4Youth are pleased to acknowledge that Nurole.com was instrumental in recently sourcing additional trustees to fill vacancies on our board.
