Samantha Graham (pictured), currently Head of Communications at Langley House Trust, has been appointed to this role from mid-September 2019. She will take over from Jane Gould BCAi, Clean Sheet’s Founder and current CEO, who will be retiring this summer. Jane Gould said:

It has been a huge privilege to have led Clean Sheet from what was a simple idea to the national organisation it is today. I have been planning to step down for some time and I am so pleased that Clean Sheet now moves into an exciting future under the new leadership of Sam Graham, with the support it needs from the Langley House Trust Group.

Samantha Graham has worked in the Criminal Justice Sector for over seven years. She currently leads Langley’s external and internal communications, political engagement and supporter contact. Previously, she worked in a Business Development capacity within Langley, helping to secure government and grant funding. In the last couple of years, she has been instrumental in supporting organisational change initiatives.

Speaking about her appointment, Samantha Graham said:

I am thrilled to be joining Clean Sheet. I will be leading a team who are incredibly dedicated and committed to helping people coming from prison into employment. Jane has built a highly successful organisation and it is a great privilege to take this forward.

Clean Sheet was taken over by the Langley House Trust Group earlier this year to provide the financial stability and infrastructure needed that will help Clean Sheet to continue supporting ex-offenders into employment. Langley House Trust is a national offender rehabilitation charity, providing housing, advice, support and care to ex-offenders throughout England.
