The North East Leadership Group is a group of like-minded men &
women who are keen to help create the next generation of young
The North East region launched a Leadership Group in February
2012. It was developed by Chairman of The Development Committee
John Wall and the now Chair of The Leadership Group Nigel McMinn,
to help build sustained funding streams for Trust programmes and to
help move young people into employment. Last year in the North East
alone the Trust supported almost 4,000 young people.
It is a prestigious and innovative group. Primarily a networking
and fundraising group, the focus is on providing support and
developing opportunities for disadvantaged young people in the
region. Common threads hold the group together - to help
change young lives, to seek personal and professional enhancement
and to enjoy the infinite value of giving something back to the
region’s communities, economy and future.
