Chair of Trustees
I am a Responsible Business Consultant with many years’ experience in Corporate Responsibility and a background in HR, marketing and communications. My company Flourish CSR provides specialist advice to high street retailers, global fashion brands and NGOs on a range of issues including sustainability and climate action, ethical sourcing, diversity and inclusion, animal welfare and charity partnerships.
I am a psychotherapist and was one of the first to work with clients with TFSW when the charity was created. After many years I chose to step back from the frontline and become a trustee instead. Since then I’ve had several different roles: fundraising initiatives, organising conferences, marketing and proofreading leaflets.
I have over 10 years’ experience as a specialist social worker working with refugees. I currently run a support service for refugees and migrants living with HIV in the Bristol area.
I am a freelance fundraising consultant with 25 years' experience of working principally for social welfare charities. I believe we must support those coming to our country seeking refuge and asylum and that we have much to gain from inclusion. I am therefore delighted and honoured to have become a trustee of TFSW.
I have worked as a barrister representing individual clients in immigration cases in courts and tribunals. I am a tribunal judge sitting in the social entitlement and immigration & asylum chambers of the First-tier Tribunal.
I worked as an inner-city GP with a remarkably diverse population for many years. I became interested in the physical, psychological, and social issues affecting the health of people I was working with who had fled war, persecution, or oppression. I became a trustee of TFSW after retiring from clinical work.
I am CEO of Trauma Treatment International. I have over 20 years' experience working with NGOs to build scale, capabilities and partnerships. I join TFSW in their determination to provide essential mental health interventions to those who need them most.
