Transitions UK – Supporting disadvantaged youth at risk aged 14 to 25 yrs

Our Trustees

Andrew Sykes, Chairman of Trustees

Andrew Sykes is Chairman of the RHG Insurance group – a substantial insurance and investment company which he set up and developed himself over 20 years. He has a BA in insurance administrations and qualifications in business studies and IT. He has extensive contacts and a very strong reputation across the region for quality of the company’s staff and products. He is very committed to youth work and supports and volunteers for a community boating association with similar groups. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a member of Rotary, and a freeman of London.


Zee Razaq, Charity Treasurer

Zee is a qualified accountant, and runs Certax Accounting, a Harpenden based accounting business. He has been with us only for a few months and is making a fantastic contribution to the charity’s internal accounting and works closely with Ron Overton, our Chief Executive to ensure we have the right information to make good decisions about the Charity’s future development.

Zee is very keen to help support the vision of Transitions UK and is enthusiastic about helping young people in ways that change their lives – and loves the very diverse pool of volunteers as well as beneficiaries that we work with.


Amanda Winder

Amanda is our most recent Trustee but has been a “founding supporter” of the charity. She runs a learning and development agency called Strive Development, and is passionate about helping young people to fulfil their potential, including through apprenticeship and volunteering.

Her HR background is a great asset to the charity as well as her experience of working with young people.

Having been a supporter of Transitions since it began, she has fundraised with us on a few occasions, including climbing Ben Nevis!
