Sussex Clubs for Young People are proud to announce that Sir John Smith QPM has agreed to become the new President. He has been a senior police officer and retired some years ago as the Deputy Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Force based in London.
Sir John said:
” I am delighted to be associated with Sussex Clubs for Young People and will support their work in any way I can. Young people need a lot of help and encouragement in order to fulfil their potential and this is what our organisation is good at doing” .
Sussex Clubs for Young People, like most charities, has had a difficult time over the last 2 years during the pandemic but the vibrant Board of Directors is confident that Chris Cook our Chief Executive and our wonderful staff will take the charity forward and create many opportunities for young people over the next 2 to 3 years. Currently there are some 150 or so youth clubs in East and West Sussex and Brighton and Hove that are affiliated and use the training courses and events to enhance the lives of many young people.
