Outgoing Chair of Young Solutions, Michael Hunter

Michael first encountered Hereford and Worcester CVYS (Council for Voluntary Youth Services) while he was the adult training manager for Hereford and Worcester Scouts in late 1980’s.
In 1997 it was agreed to form a Worcestershire CVYS and Michael became the Vice Chair.
He became the Chair in 1999 and has continued in that role ever since, helping to secure the resources needed to continue the support to the voluntary youth sector in 2002 and registering the organisation as a charity.
Michael was also one of the first voluntary sector members of Worcestershire Children and Young People’s Strategic Partnership (CYPSP). He chaired the Partnership Advisory Body of the CYPSP, which brought together a wide cross section of partners including schools, health, county and other local authorities, police, etc and advised the Joint Commissioning Board (NHS and Worcestershire County Council).

Michael has also been a key member of the Safeguarding Children Board for many years and worked closely with successive independent chairs to raise the profile of the voluntary youth sector.
We would like to thank Michael for his significant contribution to the voluntary sector in Worcestershire over the past 30 years and his leadership of Young Solutions for 22 years.
We were delighted to present him with his own Tryangle Award in recognition of his achievements!

Michael formally handed over the role of Chair to Simon Hill, Youth Officer of the Diocese of Worcester on 7th October 2021
