NORTH East based youth development charity, The Key, is delighted to announce the appointment of Richard Haigh as its new Chief Executive Officer, starting in October.

The appointment comes at a pivotal time for The Key as the current CEO, Hannah Underwood, prepares for her new role as the charity’s Director of Growth and Innovation and the organisation begins to implement significant growth plans following a major investment from national funders.

Chair of Trustees, Andrew Silver, said:

“We are delighted to appoint Richard in the role of CEO for The Key. He has a wealth of experience working in the charity sector and shares our passion for inspiring belief in young people. Richard clearly demonstrates The Key’s core values of focus, growth and collaboration and we look forward to supporting Richard and the team on the next stage of our journey to inspire belief in an ever-increasing number of young people.”

Richard’s strong passion for young people and youth work has shone brightly throughout his career. With over 25 years’ experience in a range of roles in the statutory and voluntary sector, including recent positions as Assistant Director for Impact at Barnado’s and Director of Quality and Resources for Safer London, the charity is delighted with the knowledge and experience that the new appointment brings.

Richard said of his appointment:

“I’m absolutely delighted to be appointed as the new Chief Executive Officer for The Key. I know first-hand how much The Key and its Framework can offer the young people who directly participate, the organisations they are involved with, and the wider community, so I was thrilled to pursue an opportunity to join the team.”

“I start in October, at a time when all organisations are facing challenges and working out new ways to adapt and meet the needs of those who they serve. I can’t wait to begin work with new colleagues and partners in order to respond to those challenges, as well as identify new opportunities.”
