Catholic youth charity Million Minutes has announced the appointment of its first full time Director. Daisy Srblin, currently Senior UK Advocacy Adviser at Christian Aid will take up the role over the summer.
Million Minutes, founded in 2011, supports young people to transform their lives and society inspired by Catholic social teaching.
The charity has reached tens of thousands of young people and engaged them in over a million minutes of advocacy for young people through siLENT, and a million minutes of social action. Over a thousand young people active in different areas of social action from across the country have been recognised through their 'Celebrating Young People Awards' initiative, supported by Cardinal Nichols.
Reflecting on her appointment, Daisy said: "I'm thrilled to be able to support Million Minutes as its new Director. The charity has caught the attention of the youth work world by extending the Church's mission to include young people beyond the visible Catholic community. I'm looking forward to driving this work forward, working on behalf of all young people."
Million Minutes' Chair of trustees, Nicky Pisa, said: "As we approach our tenth anniversary this is a very significant milestone for Million Minutes. Daisy joins us to help lead our work to serve the Church's mission to young people. Pope Francis has extended to the Church a challenging call to step up, reach out and to develop a broad and inclusive ministry to our young people, walking with them on life's journey. We need to do that whatever young people's relationship to the Church and whatever their background. Daisy joins us committed to that vision, eager to help us to respond."
