Seeking ‘Epic’ directors to make a difference for young people across London

10 April 2017

People with a range of business experience and skills are being sought to join the board of Epic CIC. Formerly the Royal Borough’s youth service, Epic CIC is an innovative not-for-profit enterprise that helps to improve the lives of disadvantaged young people in London.

The search is on for non-executive directors who can help implement a new business model for youth provision and help make Epic’s services sustainable. People with expertise in business development, financial management and marketing are particularly welcome, as well as people with experience of local authority commissioning.

Chair of Epic board of directors, Marla Shapiro, said: “This is an exciting time as we seek to expand and improve our work that will support young people and develop a dynamic and sustainable social business.

“It is hugely rewarding being able to put my years of experience in the commercial sector to good use and I hope others will want to do the same and be part of our exciting growth.”

Last year Epic CIC supported more than 5,000 children and young people, helping them to overcome a range of challenges from absence from school, lack of formal qualifications, mental and physical health problems, substance misuse and youth crime and gang problems.
