Leap Confronting Conflict has promoted its director of London programmes to be its next chief executive.
Gabin Sinclair-Constance takes the top role having joined the charity, which supports young people to manage conflict, in 2017 as a delivery manager before directing programmes in the capital three years later.
He has 30 years’ experience working with young people and in senior roles for the last 12 years.
“I am thrilled to be taking the role of CEO at Leap, an organisation that truly aligns with my personal values,” said Sinclair-Constance.
“This represents a great step forward for diversity and equality at Leap – having been in conversations about the lack of representation in senior leadership roles across the charity sector, I am excited to be a part of the change.
“Over the last five years, it has been amazing to see the impact that Leap’s work can have on the lives of young people and the adults who support them. I look forward to working with our team of staff, freelance trainers, and young people to take the charity forward.”
