We received sad news that Bob Forsyth, friend of NYA, died on 11th February aged only 50 years old. Bob was a tireless advocate for youth work and facilitator of social change to improve the lives of young people. Most recently Bob was director of the European Youth Card Association of which NYA was a member. Bob had worked with Habitat for Humanity and then took on the European role with enthusiasm and energy – first in Bratislava and later in Brussels. Working with the NYA he was particularly keen to find a way to bring the benefits of the youth card scheme to England. Bob was a warm-hearted and engaging man and he will be missed by those of us here who worked with him.
