New Director looking to make an impact

23rd September 2015

Patrick Taylor arrived at Youth United Foundation in early September as the Director of Programmes and Impact. He has joined the team from social innovation foundation Nesta, where he led its work on social action and education, and he previously worked in a number of roles at youth social action charity Envision before joining its senior management team as Head of Programmes.

Paddy’s role will oversee and develop all of our grant programmes and collaboration activities, such as the Mapping Tool, impact measurement and the sharing of best practice in the network. He says: “I’m excited to have joined a team that is brimming with ideas, and look forward to getting out and about to meet as much of the network as possible over the coming weeks and months.”

Paddy will be travelling the country to introduce himself and get to know the network over the coming months, but if you have any ideas that you’d like to share with him in the meantime please feel free to drop him a line at
