We are very excited to introduce our three new trustees and what better way to celebrate this than on ‘Volunteer Week’. We are so fortunate to have recruited some amazing people with a wealth of knowledge and specialisms that will play a vital role in developing Pedestrian’s future.
Dan is an experienced sport, youth and community development professional, with over 14 years of experience within the sector. He believes passionately in the transformative role that sport, music, art and wider youth engagement activities can have on young people and within local communities. He is aware that good engagement comes about through an understanding of the needs of local young people and delivering programmes that connect and resonate with them to generate a sense of empowerment, ownership and pride.
“I am excited to join the board of Pedestrian and hope that I can utilise my knowledge and experience to support the growth of the organisation, and to continue to create high quality opportunities for the young people we serve”
Helen works for Leicester City Children and Young People’s Justice Service as the Victim Contact Office and also organises creative workshops and interventions for young people. Prior to this, she spent several years in the charity and education sectors working to support young people to have the best possible outcomes.
“I am excited to be joing Pedestrian’s Board of Trustees and look forward to being part of an organisation that puts the needs of each individual young person at the heart of their delivery”
