Research and Policy Manager
Head of Communications
“Going along to a Driving Impact workshop in my first couple of months took my breath away. That our charity partners and their staff feel able to trust us enough to share their innermost workings with honesty and openness spoke volumes to me. The more I learned about Impetus, the more invested I felt. Here was a charity helping the sector in the most unusual but sensible way. Meeting the inspiring folk who would later become my colleagues only cemented those first impressions.”

Director of Public Affairs
“From my very first day at Impetus I could tell that it was a really special place to work. And when I started mentoring a young person from ThinkForward – one of our charity partners – that’s when I really felt inspired. To see the impact of our work firsthand has been truly amazing.”

Director of Policy
“Having worked in the voluntary and private sectors, and with public sector bodies for many years, I’ve always wanted to combine the best of them into one organisation – and Impetus is the closest I’ve experienced to it being managed successfully. And we don’t lose our focus on the frontline. Within the first week of joining I was celebrating young people’s achievements at an awards ceremony in Hammersmith, talking to the charity partner CEO, young people and their parents about the impact of the work we support. That has to be the starting point of our policy and advocacy work and is drives me to help transform more young people’s lives for the better.”
Digital Communications Manager
“For me, it was the moment I saw Hafso stand up on stage at our Transforming Lives Dinner. Here was a young woman who had been through so many hard times. Yet she had the courage to feature in our film – and tell a room full of 400 strangers. She changed her life around. She said that she couldn’t have done it without our charities. Without us. In that single moment, I realised that all my hard work was worth it.”
