Leatherhead Youth Project (LYP) would like to announce an exciting development for the organisation. With Joe Crome moving on from LYP to take on a new role as the Director of Philanthropy at The Community Foundation For Surrey, Oli Bell will be stepping in as the interim general manager at LYP.
Oli has over 10 years’ experience in youth work. Previously working with young offenders in Plymouth, Oli has been at LYP for 6 years. He has seen LYP go from strength to strength and is currently the Senior Youth Worker for the Bookham Youth Project, a new initiative started by LYP. Following the relational model of youth work developed by LYP we have set up a variety of programmes for young people in Bookham and the surrounding area.
LYP, now in its 13th year, is providing more services than ever before and offers greater support for young people across the district. LYP is also considered a centre of excellence for youth work across the county.
LYP will continue to provide the same excellent youth work under the Oli’s management. He will be leading the team in an interim position while a recruitment process is undertaken.
LYP and the Community Foundation for Surrey have enjoyed a special relationship for many years, with the Community Foundation for Surrey supporting LYP to provide excellent youth work in Leatherhead, Bookham and across Mole Valley.
Joe will be greatly missed at LYP but Oli and the team wish him all the best at the Community Foundation for Surrey and look forward to an even greater relationship between the two organisations.
For more details of the work LYP is involved in please contact Oli and the team, or pop in to our social enterprise, Allsaints Coffee Shop, Leatherhead for a speciality coffee.
