About me

About me

In my working life, I’m a campaigner. Now I’m head of campaigns and communications for the TUC.

I’ve worked for number of bigger and smaller charities including Shelter, Oxfam and the innovative domestic abuse charity SafeLives. I’ve always worked with some of the most marginalised people in our society, fighting to get more homes built, help teenage mums go back to education, for decent workplace rights and for support for women who’ve been abused.

My key interests are housing, women’s, equality and LGBT issues, poverty policy, welfare and work policy. I am a trustee of the Nationwide Foundation and a past trustee of the Fawcett Society.

I grew up in Croydon, where my Mum and Dad still live. Now I live in Bermondsey, in south London. In my spare time I like to run, go to the gym, read, watch Netflix and spend time with my girlfriend and the cat. I support Crystal Palace FC.
