After eight years with Mosaic, the last six as Managing Director, Jonathan Freeman will be leaving Mosaic and The Prince’s Trust to take up an exciting new role providing strategic leadership to the Patchwork Foundation.
Jonathan has been involved with Mosaic since its inception and has been instrumental in its development. In the last six years, Mosaic has supported over 40,000 young people in disadvantaged communities through its programmes.
Over the last year, Jonathan has led the successful transition of Mosaic to The Prince’s Trust and helped lay the foundations for significant growth over the next few years.
Shabir Randeree CBE, Mosaic Chairman and Prince’s Trust Council member, said “Jonathan’s contribution to Mosaic is unparalleled. His effort and passion helped us build a unique delivery model for mentoring which has served the most disadvantaged of our communities. We wish him well with his next project.”
Dame Martina Milburn CBE, Group Chief Executive of The Prince’s Trust, said “Jonathan has played a key leadership role in Mosaic, during which time he led the organisation through significant growth in the UK and overseas. His understanding of the sensitivities of dealing with minority communities, particularly those from Muslim backgrounds, is excellent. I wish Jonathan well in the future and would like to thank him for his part in successfully transiting Mosaic into The Prince’s Trust.”
HRH Princess Badiya bint El Hassan, Founder Chairman of Mosaic, said “For eight years, Jonathan worked with Mosaic’s supporters, volunteers and staff team, from Business in the Community to The Prince’s Trust, to ensure the development and delivery of quality mentoring programmes. He has a genuine commitment to helping young people, Muslims and their peers, to fulfil their positive potential. I commend his efforts and dedication and wish him all the best with his future endeavours.”
As well as his new role at Patchwork Foundation, which aims to promote and encourage the positive integration of under-represented, deprived and minority communities into British political and civic society, Jonathan will retain his personal role as Senior Mentoring Adviser to the Careers and Enterprise Company.
