High Sheriff George Anson

Aylesbury-based charity, Youth Concern, is delighted to announce that the newly appointed High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, George Anson, has chosen Youth Concern as one of the Buckinghamshire charities he has pledged to support in his year in office.

As High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire George Anson is the ceremonial head of law and order and he has chosen charities and good causes that do important work helping to uphold law and order in the county.   Youth Concern works with vulnerable and at risk 13-25 year olds by providing advocacy, counselling, education, employment and housing support so they can live safe, happy and fulfilling lives and contribute positively to society.

Hannah Asquith, CEO of Youth Concern comments: “We are very grateful to the High Sheriff for supporting Youth Concern.  For small and local charities, receiving the patronage of people in influential positions is vital in raising awareness of the critical work we do to help Aylesbury Vale’s disadvantaged young people. Last year Youth Concern supported 473 young people from across Aylesbury Vale and was in fortnightly contact with 300 local businesses and individuals. George’s support presents a wonderful opportunity for even more young people, businesses, charities and statutory services to become familiar with our services.

George Anson, High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire commented: “Youth Concern is an amazing charity that I’ve supported for many years.  Over the past four decades they have helped thousands of young people through challenging times and given them help and hope when they needed it.  I’m very honoured to be able to use my new position as a force for good to support the young people of Aylesbury Vale.”
