YPF Trust's journey continues with appointing our first CEO, Justin Watson.

Justin is not a stranger to the YPF Family, currently leading our flagship out of London YPF, as Young Manchester’s Director. Justin’s extensive experience of cross-sector partnership working, championing of the CYP sector and Place-Based Investment, gives us great optimism and excitement for the YPF journey ahead.

Justin will continue to support the work of Young Manchester through their next stage of development alongside his transition over to YPF Trust.

We’re really looking forward to this next stage in YPF Trust’s Development and the opportunities it will bring for the YPF Network.

Justin is also excited…….

“I’m delighted to be joining the YPF Trust, and really excited about the opportunity to lead this new charity – one that is explicitly focused on meeting the needs of children and young people locally through partnership and collaboration. Young People’s Foundations have shown that strong, diverse and inclusive partnerships lead to greater investment and growth in the youth and play sector and with a strong sector comes better outcomes for children, young people and communities.

This also presents a great opportunity for Young Manchester, as the charity continues to deliver for children and young people in Manchester and strengthen connections to a growing movement of local partnerships for children and young people."
