Praxis are seeking an inspirational leader to take on the role of Chief Executive
Praxis is actively searching for a new Chief Executive. Vaughan Jones, who has been with Praxis since its inception 30 years ago will retire in the summer of 2014. This creates an opening for a suitably experienced and visionary person to take Praxis forward into an exciting new phase. The appointment comes at a time when Praxis is launching a new social enterprise, the Praxis Language Gym and is also focused on creating effective solutions to tackle the hostile environment which our clients are experiencing.
Praxis Chair, Barbara Roche says “I want to assure everyone that the Praxis board is giving absolute priority to selecting our new Chief Executive. We are looking for someone who will build on our achievements and will be fully committed to Praxis’ values.”

Brighter Futures launch 2 short films and petition
Brighter Futures have launched 2 new videos, 'Limbo Life' and 'Time Wasting', and a petition as part of their campaign 'The Cost of Waiting'.
Here's why they're important - It's unacceptable for the UK Home Secterary to force young people to wait for years in a limbo for a decision on their immigration case. Young people should have their human rights respected- such as access to education and work- while they are waiting
The cost of waiting on young people is too high. Waiting in a limbo has a terrible impact on young people's lives, aspirations and mental health. It is a lose-lose game, where both the country and the young people are losing.
Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now? Here's the link:
