Horizons is delighted to announce the appointment of its first CEO, Gareth Parker.

Gareth has over 20 years of experience in the charity sector, including senior roles at Shelter and Centrepoint, and founded the multi-award-winning football charity The Homeless FA in 2012.⁠

His career focus has been on equity and social mobility, particularly through sport and the arts, and he brings a wealth of relevant experience to the role. He also brings a burning passion for our work, and we cannot wait to see where he takes the organisation.⁠
