Doug Moodie, Chair of Helm Board has given the following update:

“On behalf of everyone connected with Helm we are delighted to announce the appointment of Ally Calder as our new Chief Executive Officer from June 2020.  Ally brings with her a wealth of experience, innovative ideas, and a reputation built on trust and sheer hard work which puts young people at the forefront of everything she believes in and stands for.  The board of Helm felt that this ethos and the energy and enthusiasm which Ally will bring to Helm and our young people and staff will undoubtedly drive Helm along the path of the next stage in its evolution and support of young people from across Tayside.  Ally joins us having learnt her trade and honing her skills with the Rock Trust with whom she has worked tirelessly for over 17 years, and was their Head of Services for the past 8 years.  Ally, in her spare time, is also Chair of the Board of Directors of Scottish Mentoring Network, again, a little glimpse that Helm have secured someone who puts others first and enjoys seeing others flourish and develop.  We are delighted to welcome Ally to the team and know that our young people, our staff, and the vision for Helm is in good hands going forward. I, and my fellow board members look forward to working with Ally and sharing the Helm mantra of ‘Dare to Dream’ for all young people in Tayside and beyond.”
