Our new Chair Vice Chair 

Leslie Morphy, former CEO of Crisis, appointed as our new Chair & Marvin Campbell, Senior Consultant at Deloitte, appointed as our Vice Chair.

We welcome a new Chair & Vice Chair to our Board of Trustees

I am thrilled to join Become as Chair. At a time when there are record numbers of children in care and a care system that is failing to provide the love, support and stability they need, the work of the charity is more urgent than ever.

⎯⎯ Leslie Morphy, Become’s new Chair

Leslie brings a wealth of experience to the Become board from her time at Crisis, where she was CEO until 2015, and as a Director at The Princes Trust, where she worked with disadvantaged young people, including care leavers. She has held a number of other non-executive roles, including Chair of the Board at Oxford Brookes University, Senior Independent Director at an NHS mental health trust, and is currently the Chair for Pathway, a charity addressing homeless and inclusion health.

Marvin is a Senior Consultant at Deloitte where he supports the design and delivery of complex transformation programmes across the public sector. He brings a breadth of personal and professional experience of children’s social care, and most recently supported engagement and the policy recommendations for care-experienced people as part of the Independent Review of Children’s Social Care.

Leslie and Marvin join the Become board at a time when the care system is in crisis and there are more children in care than ever. They will be working with the Board and Become team to grow the charity’s impact and, as we look towards a general election, ensure the next Government delivers change for care-experienced children and young people.

“We are delighted to welcome Leslie and Marvin to the Become Board. Leslie has extensive experience of leadership and governance and a strong commitment to improving the lives of care-experienced young people. We are very excited about the positive impact we will have in the years ahead with Leslie’s support and guidance.

“We’re fortunate to also be joined by Marvin as Vice Chair who brings a huge amount of personal and professional experience to the board. We’re very grateful to Beth and Andy for stepping forward to co-chair Become in the interim period, which has included launching new services, producing a report with MPs and our Christmas appeal with the i Paper. Their leadership and support have been invaluable over the last six months.” – Katharine Sacks-Jones, CEO of Become

Existing board members Andy Harris and Beth Taswell have been acting as interim co-chairs since former Chair Hugh Thornbery, CBE, stepped down from the Board last year.

Having grown up in care I have seen first-hand the difficulties those with care experience face, and the vital role Become has had on children and young people and the wider system over the last 30 years.

⎯⎯ Marvin Campbell, Become’s new Vice Chair
