Brightside announces changes to the Board of Trustees

Brightside founder & Chair of the Board of Trustees, John Berry, will be stepping down from his role at the end of this month after an amazing 18 years and having supported well over 140,000 young people.

Below, a message from Stuart Payne, our incoming Chair of the Board:

I am hugely proud and excited to have been given the opportunity to take over as Chairman of Brightside from January, having worked with the organisation now since 2007, and knowing that Laura Gray and her team are fantastic & utterly focused on supporting disadvantaged young people across the country.

As well as John, we have 3 other trustees whose terms are coming to an end and so we are now seeking applications to join our board of trustees in 2021. This is a fantastic opportunity to come and help shape a great organisation with a vital mission.

The Brightside team would like to say a huge thank you to John Berry for his 18 years of service to Brightside- we wouldn’t be where we are today without you.
