YMCA Brighton are thrilled to announce the appointment of Hélène Begg as our new Chief Executive Officer from the 20th November 2023.

Hélène has worked with YMCA Brighton over numerous roles, starting off as a Project Worker at George Williams Mews; then becoming a Senior Project Worker at Steine House, to then join the Management team at William Collier House, where she worked for ten years. She left the organisation in 2017 for a senior leadership role in Health and Social Care where she continued to develop accessible services for marginalised populations. In January 2023, YMCA Brighton were fortunate to have Hélène re-join YMCA Brighton as the Head of Housing and Community Services.

YMCA Brighton’s mission is to support homeless people of all ages discover their potential and feel inspired to achieve aspirations and live life to its fullest. Hélène’s extensive leadership experience and knowledge of our sector will be key to fulfil YMCA Brighton’s mission, broaden our reach and advocate for a society where everyone is able to contribute and belong.
