Hello! My name is Roisin and I have been a trustee for the Youth Arts and Health Trust since the summer of 2021. I am a freelance theatre director from Cornwall and a recent graduate of the University of Exeter.
My first venture into organisational governance was with the Exeter Northcott Theatre where I was a student trustee. From that experience, I understood the importance of diversity on trustee boards and became an advocate for ensuring young people’s voices are fairly represented, particularly for charities where young people are at its core.
I am a longstanding advocate for promoting positive mental health and recognise the urgency of effective therapies for at-risk young people. I know first hand how the arts can be used as a tool and know that the fantastic services YAHT provide save lives.
