Meet our Board of Trustees. They govern Youthscape as a registered charity. They also decide how we are organised and run to achieve our aims and ensure we are making a difference for young people.

Hello, I’m Andrew, and I’ve been the chair of the Youthscape board since 2009.
I first began as a trustee of Youthscape in 2007 before becoming its chair. I’m also the managing director of Beales Hotels, a family business that dates back eight generations, to 1769! This charity has been a big part of my life, it’s an amazing organisation full of brilliant people and destined for an exciting future. I began my hospitality career as a washer up, waiter and doorman before taking on the family business in 2001. When I’m not working I love to mess around Cambridgeshire’s River Great Ouse in my Dutch steel cruiser, go climbing and skiing in the French Alps, or play the cello at my church, St Mary’s Luton. I live in Hertfordshire with my family.
Hi, I lecture in Health and Social Care at the University of Bedfordshire, and I’m a Youthscape trustee.
I’ve got a strong interest in youth and young people’s transitions – I finished my PhD on the involvement of young people in the informal economy in 2016, and I now lecture on Health and Social Care at the University of Bedfordshire. I’m an Associate Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy, and as a teacher I encourage a student-centred approach to learning. My background is in Law, and I have a range of experience of supporting vulnerable people. I’ve worked for the Citizens Advice Bureau as a money adviser, as a volunteer advocate for people with learning disabilities, and I’m currently a volunteer money coach with Christians Against Poverty, in conjunction with Luton Christian Fellowship. I’m married and have two young children.
Hi, I’m Tim, a Church of England priest and a trustee on the Youthscape board.
I’m the Director of Mission in the Diocese of St Albans, and a Residentiary Canon in the Cathedral. My family (my beautiful wife Kate and three wonderful children) and I live in St Albans with our black Labrador Max. I’m passionate about reimagining the Church’s role in God’s mission, exploring fresh expressions of church and encouraging growth through innovative, transformative missional worship. I’m a Fresh Expressions Associate, a consultant to the Church of England Liturgical Commission, and the author of Creating Missional Worship, which explores the meeting of Anglican liturgy with contemporary culture. I’m also a songwriter and visiting lecturer to colleges and conferences. When not working I love dog walks, gym sessions, family holidays and supporting Stoke City F.C.
Hi, I’m Andy, a Church of England vicar and a trustee on the Youthscape board.
After a long career in the tech and business industry I’m now a curate at St Mary’s Church in Luton. I studied Physics at university, more recently read Theology at St Mellitus College, London, and was ordained in 2016. I was part of Soul Survivor Watford Church since it began in 1993; the passion for youth work that started there has never left. I love seeing young people be the best that they can be, and I’m excited about continuing to bring my experience in both business and church leadership to Youthscape’s board. I’m married to Joanna, a teacher, and have two gown-up sons. When not working I love hill walking and scuba diving, but not both at the same time.
Hi, I'm Matt, a church leader in Hitchin, youth worker and a Youthscape trustee
I'm the Senior Pastor of Zeo Church which he leads alongside a wider speaking, training, coaching and writing ministry. Prior to this, I served for 18 years as CEO, and latterly President, of the youth and children's missionary movement, Urban Saints. I am passionate about releasing potential in people and organisations, with a particular commitment to see young people live God’s great adventure. I love meaty pizzas, Belgian Chocolate Haagen Daaz and great movies!
