TDC is very sad to be sharing the news that our founder, friend and community development legend Barry Hulyer died earlier this month.
Barry set up TDC from scratch in 2000, with the aim of sharing values driven, empowering community development work across our city. His creation has gone on to thrive as an impactful charity with neighbourhood community development always at its heart; empowering communities and employing 40 staff to deliver youth work, equalities work and the work in neighbourhoods across the city. Barry touched many lives and was responsible for training hundreds of people – many still working in the sector today.
Barry’s legacy lives on – before TDC, he ran the Hangleton and Knoll Project, was involved in setting up the CVSF (now Community Works), Audio Active and the Resource Centre – all successful and influential charities to this day. A tribute has been made to Barry in the Brighton & Hove News which further details the huge impact he made in the city.
Our condolences go out to Barry’s family and friends. We hope to run a Memorial Event when possible and will keep everyone posted on details as they form.
