Clayton Bryce BSc
Clayton Bryce founded Valicity care services in 2017. Prior to this, he worked for Thanet Healthcare Ltd which focused on adults with mental ill health. Having gained experience of the care sector through this work, Clayton decided he wanted to focus on working with young people. He completed a degree in sociology and criminology. His dissertation focused on the link between young people’s mental health and crime, particularly gang and knife crime. Clayton then lead a successful joint venture between Thanet Healthcare and a young people’s mental health organisation. It was this which confirmed his desire to create a new service which is focused on young people and Valicity was created. Valicity currently works in London and the Midlands.
Yousuf graduated from University of Bristol in 2002 with a first class degree in International Development and Political Sciences. After graduation he secured a scholarship in regeneration with the Home Office as the first Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Executive within the South West region of England.
His achievements centred around identifying, managing and developing regeneration strategies within deprived inner-city wards throughout the largest region of the country. Individual schemes ranged from £500,000 to £15m with a total regional budget of £250m annually. During his two-year tenure his contribution was the development of the application of property development within regeneration, targeting crime prevention and affordable housing strategies.
After leaving the Home Office, during the housing market boom period, Yousuf utilised his international network and understanding of inner-city opportunities to secure a personal £40.5 million property portfolio.
More recently, Yusuf has secured more than £175m international investment to establish a private equity investment bank which will provide financing to small and medium sized enterprises.
His vision is to mobilise deprived communities through financial investment and build capacity amongst marginalised entrepreneurs to increase the quality of life for the communities they serve.
Once a homeless person without any financial or emotional support, Harbinder faced many challenges. Since then he has since created a personal portfolio in hospitality and property worth more than £25m.
Currently, Harbinder is investing in Wales with the first 4-star business-hub hotel which acts as a conduit for aspiring entrepreneurs and young people. A £5m investment will see the very first tech led business hotel giving disadvantaged people an opportunity for social and economic development.
Outside work, being an active Sportsman, Harbinder has continuously supported and worked with young people’s charities nationally to encourage ambition amongst deprived communities.
His expertise in property development and entrepreneurship as well as his international network means Harbinder brings great value to his role on the board of Valicity.
