Meet the Fresh Futures Sustainability Forum

To help Fresh Futures achieve its 2023 20-point sustainability action plan, the charity has established a Sustainability Forum made up of Fresh Futures employees, volunteers, tenants, governors and service users. The forum will meet virtually three times per year to ensure the charity is on target to achieve the action plan, and to work together to deliver the best possible outcomes.

Currently, the forum is made up of the following individuals:

  • Christine Rhodes (Fresh Futures Employee – Community Connections)
  • Gill Goodswen (Fresh Futures Trustee & College Governor)
  • Jodie Kavanagh (Fresh Futures Employee – Thriving Kirklees)
  • Lucy Martin (Fresh Futures Employee – Volunteering)
  • Rob Edden (Fresh Futures Employee – Senior Leadership Team)
  • Samantha Cashman (Fresh Futures Employee – Children & Family Services)
  • Samantha Latchayya (Fresh Futures Employee – Sustainability Champion)
  • Stephen Halliday (Volunteer – YCC’s Garden Space & Befriender)
  • Susan Greenwood (Fresh Futures Tenant – Kirklees Youth Alliance)

The first 2023 forum meeting took place in January, with special guest Councillor Andrew Cooper, Green Party Kirklees Councillor for Newsome Ward.
