Strategic Head of Service (YHO) and Head of Communities
I’m Raz the Head of Communities working across ABL’s national footprint and the Strategic Head of Service for Your Health Oldham.
I have over 15 years’ experience working in the Public, Private and Third Sector with the last 7 years spent in senior leadership positions including Chief Operations Officer at Mahdlo Oldham Youth Zone and Chief Executive at Blackburn Youth Zone. Throughout the course of my career I’ve focused on supporting young people and communities to develop themselves, their skills and behaviours to become better versions of themselves whilst also leading services and organisations that offer, support, guidance, opportunities and programmes to make that change sustainable and reduce inequalities.
I’m an avid football, cricket and boxing fan and like to spend time with my family and friends and spend time volunteering in my hometown of Huddersfield to set up youth clubs and projects for local residents and faith institutions.
