We are really pleased to announce that our new Head of Networks and Practice Development, Steve Hillman, joined us last week. Steve will lead the Centre’s work in supporting its regional and thematic networks to lead on and shape the evidence and impact agenda, and to develop evaluation practice locally. Steve will also lead on developing and integrating Project Oracle’s offer through the Centre, following the merger with the Centre in August 2018.
Steve has 18 years’ experience in the youth sector. Prior to joining the Centre, Steve was Director of Policy and Impact at the Foyer Federation, a youth housing and personal development charity. Whilst at the Foyer Federation Steve led on developing a Theory of Change for the UK Foyer network, and developed a revised impact measurement model that was aligned to the Foyer Federation’s Quality Assurance process. The Foyer Federation was also one of the Centre's ‘early adopters’ and as a result Steve has been engaging with and supporting the Centre's work since its foundation.
Steve is very much looking forward to getting out to see the Networks and sharing his experience of how working with the Centre can have a transformative impact on organisations and their outcomes for young people.
