4 May 2020

In response to Chief Executive Sophie Walker’s statement today, Young Women’s Trust Chair Jo-ann Robertson said:

“We at Young Women’s Trust are horrified by what Sophie and her family have been going through. We are in regular contact with Sophie and are doing everything we can to support her.

“I will continue to work with the Senior Management Team as they lead the organisation while Sophie takes the time she needs to look after herself and her family. We are continuing our vital work to represent young women living on low or no pay, and deliver our coronavirus emergency fund for those experiencing financial hardship.

“We will be issuing no further comment at this time.”
