Statement from new Board of Trustees
Over the past year, Fixers has been through a period of uncertainty, with lots of questions asked about the future of the charity. Many questions revolved around the resources that young people from across the UK had created and been involved in, that have made a significant difference to the lives of thousands who have seen and heard them.
At the end of October 2019, a new cohort of trustees, with significant and first-hand experience of the charity as previous staff members, were nominated onto the board and have begun to ensure the future legacy of the work that has been done over the past 10 years and more.
These are people that many of you will know and have personally worked with, and whilst only a small handful have become board members, there is a larger team of dedicated and skilled Fixers staff that are on hand to offer support and advice over the coming years.
Wes Erpen, who has taken the role of Chairman, says “we personally know how much Fixers means to all the young people who have ever been involved over the past 10 years. We have been on that journey with them, from the very start of their idea through to seeing them continue even now, campaigning for change and more. We want ensure that the resources that young people have created and made are kept online for another generation of young people to find and to make a difference”
The new board have some key decisions to make over the coming months, and we kindly ask that we be given the time to prove ourselves to our stakeholders and to the Fixers community across the country.
Over the next year, we will:
- Ensure that the legacy of Fixers and the incredible work that you have created continues
- Continue to share and talk about what you have done on social media and through other platforms, ensuring that we continue to keep the story moving on
- Engage with Fixers, new and old, to find new and unique ways that you can be involved in the future of the charity and the legacy that we want to leave behind.
In the meantime, the new board can be contacted by email and would welcome any comments or thoughts you may have. We can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org
