On becoming Chair, Joyce said:
I think I let out a little yelp of delight when I opened [Barrow Cadbury Trust CEO] Sara Llewellin’s email asking if I would consider becoming the Chair of the T2A Alliance. It took me only moments to know that I would love to get back involved with T2A and the work it is doing to promote the needs of young adults. And what a privilege to be asked to take over from Anne Owers!
As Chief Executive at Catch22, I became involved with the development of T2A right at the beginning and I’m pleased the organisation continues to play a strong role. The T2A focus brings together two of my passions – youth offending and those neglected transitional years. What I admire about the Alliance work is the combination of practice, policy and research and the long term commitment to bringing about change.
Being a part of such a good programme of work and contributing my knowledge and experience is an honour. I look forward to meeting up again with Alliance members and working with you all in the future.
Joyce takes over from Dame Anne Owers, who was Chair of the Alliance from 2011-12 until her appointment as Chair of the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
