Hi, my name is Sara Bennett. I’m the new Deputy Chief Executive Officer at Young Gloucestershire and I have been in post since April.
I am just settling into the role, starting to meet with the staff team and some of the young people receiving YG services.
My background is in the management of social housing, where I’ve worked with families and young people in Cheltenham. I delivered tenancy management services as well as housing advice and homelessness services.
I’m really excited to be working for Young Gloucestershire. I will be working closely with the Senior Management Team and the Chief Executive Officer to ensure we maintain delivery of keys areas of work such as NCS and Princes Trust as well as review how we deliver other areas of work.
My role will also be to develop service delivery elsewhere in the county, so I will look at whether we can expand and how that could be done. I am really excited about the opportunities ahead and look forward to meeting new colleagues in the sector.
