/, Mental Health, PSI/Forum Central Announcement: A New Director

Forum Central is delighted to announce that Lucy Graham has taken on the role of PSI Volition Director.

Lucy has been a part of the Forum Central team since 2017, leading on our mental health and physical impairment specialism work, promoting effective communication across the third sector and statutory partners, representing the third sector in a range of strategic settings and facilitating Forum Central members’ involvement in the planning and delivery of mental health, physical and sensory impairment services and support.

Alison Lowe, Chair of PSI-Volition says:

“I am delighted that Lucy has been recruited to the role of PSI-Volition Director. Lucy’s knowledge of our members and the wider third sector in Leeds makes her the ideal person to take Forum Central forward into its next phase and to celebrate the achievements of Leeds’ third sector.”

Lucy says:

“I have loved being a part of Forum Central for the past two years, working with fantastic colleagues, Forum Central members and statutory partners to strengthen the voice and influence of the Leeds third sector, and so it is a real pleasure to be able to take on the role of PSI Volition Director.

It’s an exciting time for Forum Central, as we move forward with our new contract, continuing to build on our successes but also looking at areas where we can enhance our support offer for members, particularly for smaller organisations, and those working with the most marginalised people in the city.

With the NHS Long Term plan announced nationally, the refresh of the Leeds Plan and the development of Local Care Partnerships happening locally, it’s more important than ever that we have a strong and sustainable third sector which effectively serves all communities in Leeds.

I hope to bring my passion, drive and enthusiasm to the Director role, to ensure that Forum Central can play its’ role in this.

I’m looking forward to meeting more of our members and partners soon, but in the meantime if you have any questions, comments or ideas please don’t hesitate to get in touch”

Lucy can be contacted on or call 0113 242 1321
