Patrons & Ambassadors

Messages from our Patrons

Lord Bishop of Norwich - The Rt Rev Graham James

It has been my pleasure to be a Patron of OPEN Youth Trust since its formation and I am pleased to see the vision becoming a reality.

Lord-Lieutenant of Norfolk - Richard Jewson

OPEN is a remarkable organisation that makes a difference to so many lives. It is organisations like OPEN and the agencies it draws in that give me great hope for the young people of Norfolk.

Chief Constable - Simon Bailey

I like OPEN’s ambition that every penny of profit raised through the venue’s live music, conferences and events will fund its youth drop-in facilities.

Business Leader - Mark Jeffries

OPEN plays a vital role in providing facilities and delivering services for young people in Norfolk.

Alfie Hewett

Alfie is a confident and very popular local hero who will be an inspiration to other young people of his age.

The work that OPEN does in giving young people the confidence and life skills to follow their dreams mirrors my own passion for my cycling.
