Our inspiring leader will be sadly missed.

It’s a very sad time here at Elidyr Communities Trust.

It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the unexpected passing of our colleague and CEO, David Sibbons, in his home during the weekend.

Dai served as our CEO for 13½ years and helped Elidyr Communities Trust make giant strides. His visionary leadership and unwavering commitment to our growth and development is woven into the fabric of our organisation – his legacy will be felt by many, for many years to come.
During this challenging time, our thoughts are with Dai's family, and we extend our deepest condolences to them. We understand that this loss is deeply felt, not only by our organisation, but also, by our extended community; friends, families, stakeholders, anyone who ever had the privilege of working with Dai.
Dai had so many big ideas, but also had the strength of character to bring them to fruition. Everyone at Elidyr Communities Trust is committed to honouring Dai’s legacy and continuing all the important projects Dai started – many of which haven’t even been announced yet.
In the coming days, we will provide additional information regarding the transition and interim leadership arrangements. We understand that many of you will have questions and we want to reassure you that we’re here to provide support and guidance during this time. Please call or email with any queries or concerns and we will endeavour to respond as quickly as possible.

We thank you for your understanding, support, and the trust you place in us everyday. Together, we will navigate this challenging period and move forward with the same drive and dedication that Dai exemplified.

Acting CEO
