A Farewell to Sam

It is with some sadness that we announce today that Sam Adofo is stepping down from the role of Director of the Salmon Youth Centre with immediate effect. This is for personal and family reasons. Sam has worked at Salmon since May 2006 and has served as the Director since April 2011. (He also spent a period of time at Salmon in the 1990s before a spell at All Soul’s Clubhouse.)

Sam says – ‘It has been a huge privilege to work at Salmon Youth Centre for over 20 years in all and I shall miss the wit and vibrancy of the many young people who have come through our doors. I hope and pray that in some small way Salmon has helped them find both place and purpose for their lives. Sadly, for personal and family reasons, it is necessary to step back at this time. I wish the Centre, and especially its young people, every blessing for the years to come.’

Adrian Greenwood, Chair of Trustees, says – ‘We are enormously grateful to Sam for all that he brought of himself to Salmon Youth Centre and for the leadership he has given over many years. The last few years of COVID and the cladding crisis have been particularly challenging. We pray for God’s blessing on him and Suzanne as they move forward to a new sphere of service.

 APRIL 2023

Following the departure of Sam Adofo from the post of Director, the Trustees have invited Jamie Anglesea, currently Deputy Director, to step in as Acting Director, while we review the financial position and consider the staffing requirements for the current situation.

Post COVID, we are experiencing increasing demand for our services by the children, young people and families of the area. The need is growing on so many fronts and we are keen to provide more in response. So we need to find additional resources to provide what is needed.
