MLMS announces Joe Rich as Trustee
My Life My Say has today announced that Joe Rich will be joining the charity on the Board of Trustees.
Joe has over 15 years experience in amplifying the voices of young people with a wide range of organisations such as the Princes Trust, Local Authorities, and the largest Housing association in the UK. She is very passionate about involving young people throughout these processes and is big on bringing people together. She founded the HAYN (Housing Association Youth Network) which has successfully invested nearly £2 million to the communities which need it most.
These experiences and her passion has led Joe to her dream job at the National Lottery Community Fund where her role is to ensure that young people’s voices are amplified and are on the platforms that need it most, including the largest funder in the UK of children and young people activity.
As My Life My Say’s Trustee, Joe will be working closely with MLMS’ chair, Andrew Roughan, and she will also be working closely with the rest of the Board of Trustees to amplify MLMS’ message to the nation and beyond. She will continue to support the charity and the Chief Executive to maximise the charity’s potential and ensure that the charity is amplified. Joe will also act as an ambassador for the charity.
Joe Rich, Trustee, said: “I am super excited to be appointed as a new Trustee at My Life My Say. I hope that my knowledge and connections, but most of all, my passion can move MLMS into a new chapter. I have been lucky enough to work alongside Mete on a few events and I have lots of admiration for what has been achieved so far. I’m excited for what lies ahead for the charity!”
Mete Coban MBE, Chief Executive said: “Joe is going to be a fabulous addition to our Board of Trustees. Her skills and experience will be invaluable to our great organisation. She is a great and inspirational individual and I’m very excited to be working further with her on the future of My Life My Say.”
My Life My Say is a non-partisan political charity that is renowned for creating spaces for dialogue across communities and generations through its signature Democracy Cafés and Quarantine Question Times which have successfully engaged thousands of young people across the globe.
