After 18 months at Ambition, Emma Revie is moving on to take on a CEO role at The Trussell Trust.
In Emma’s own words, she said:
“It has been an absolute delight and honour to work with all of our inspiring members over the last 18 months and I’m extremely excited about the possibilities our merger with UK Youth presents. Since our announcement in September, I have had the opportunity to speak with many of our members at our roundtables across the country and I look forward to speaking with many more over the coming weeks. I am delighted to say that we have identified an array of new, exciting opportunities to create the best organisation to support and advocate on behalf of youth services across the country.
The work of leading Ambition and UK Youth will be continued by Lindsay Levkoff Lynn who has, in only a short time, demonstrated a deep passion and commitment to our members and their work with young people. I am delighted that the organisation is being left in such strong hands and with the return of Anna Smee after her maternity leave, the future of our joint organisation is looking bright.
Although I am sad to leave, I am excited to be taking up the post of CEO of The Trussell Trust from February. The Trussell Trust runs a network of over 400 foodbanks, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis across the UK, where thirteen million people live below the poverty line. In the last year they gave 1,182,954 three day emergency food supplies to people in crisis. www.trusselltrust.org"
