Over the past year NCY has lost two much revered ex-staff members, Roy Gopinathan and Melissa Urbans/Playfair. Foremost our sincere sympathy continues to be with their loved ones.
Roy and Melissa were equally loved and respected by all the charity’s stakeholders, young and old. Though they never received formal recognition through award or commendation regarding the impact of their work practice. They leave a legacy of hundreds of vulnerable and marginalised young people being able to improve their lives through the advocacy, advice & guidance Roy and Melissa provided.
For those who had the privilege to know Roy and Melissa as colleagues or friends they are missed each and every day, but we find solace in the fact they are only a thought away.
