Our CEO is stepping down

Matthew Hickey, The Children’s Literacy Charity Chief Executive since January 2017, will be leaving the charity at the end of October. Matthew led the re-branding of the charity from Springboard for Children. This included new messaging, a new website and a new brand book.

Matthew said, “It is with great sadness that I am stepping down from the CLC at the end of this month, as I look to balance my health, work and home life. This truly is an amazing organisation making life changing differences to the children that we support. I am really pleased that the quality of what we deliver has been at the highest level this year, and that we have really grown the number of places where we can reach the children who need our intervention most. Long may the charity reign.”

Please join us in thanking Matthew for his committed service and wishing him well in the future.
