It is with both sadness and a huge sense of gratitude that we announce that our greatly respected and much-loved Chief Executive Shelagh O’Connor will leave this Easter.
2017 was the year New Horizon Youth Centre celebrated its 50th year since it was founded by Lord Longford, and Shelagh has been Chief Executive for almost half of that time. The incredible achievements we celebrated this year are in huge part due to her.
We have exciting plans for the future and part of Shelagh's legacy is that she will leave a very strong staff team and Board of Trustees. Between them they provide a mix of cutting edge, exciting and innovative work with young people and solid, prudent governance and management.
Shelagh will be greatly missed and I want to say a huge thank you to her for her many years of dedication to improving the lives of young people in need.
We wish her all the very best for future.
- Nick Hardwick, Chair
