About Cameron

Children and Young Persons Representative 

Cameron Joined the Familial Trust Trust nine years ago to be a children's’ group leader.
He is passionate about providing fun and safe environments for young people, and in the past has been a Youth Advisor for the Ministry of Youth Development; Cameron cares deeply about the success of young people. Cameron works as The Youth Development Services Manager at YMCA Christchurch
“The Familial Trust has profoundly impacted my life. People always talk about the addicts recovery, but really, to me, the most important recovery there is, is for the highly vulnerable family members, who are not using, yet.”
Cameron wants to bring good governance and improved access to services. He also wants to raise the profile of the services that are on offer, so young people are not missing out. “I know that every time a young person walks through our door, their recovery begins, and that, is a beautiful thing.”
