Advisory Board

Why you are motivated to be involved and support the organisation’s mission and objectives?

I am delighted to be part of the Thrive project. All societies should ultimately be judged by how well they respond to the needs of the most vulnerable, and for too long care leavers have suffered from lower economic outcomes and fewer opportunities. Thrive offers a genuine chance to find ways to change this.
