A HOUSING and support charity has a new chairman.

The charity You has appointed Graeme Quar to the position, taking over from former chairwoman Tessa Short.

Mr Quar, who has been a member of the charity’s board since 2011, said: ‘While I have a very tough act to follow after all Tessa has achieved during her time in the post.

‘I am very excited about being able to help steer the You Trust towards a bright future.’

You, which is based in Fareham, provides support and advice to vulnerable people across Hampshire and Dorset.

Ms Short has been appointed the charity’s honorary life president after joining You’s board in 1997.

She said: ‘I look forward to continuing to support You in all of its much needed work supporting vulnerable people in our communities.’
