Announcement - Samantha Hyde to leave Youth United as Interim Director

Our Interim Director, Samantha Hyde, will be finishing her contract with the Youth United Foundation on 31 January 2019.

Overall Sam has raised £6m, also securing funding from the Prince of Wales Charitable Foundation and the MHCLG for core costs and for the delivery of integration strategy priorities in England.

The Trustees and the Youth United Network are extremely grateful to Sam for everything she has done, and wish her the very best for the future.
