Director of the North East Religious Learning Resources Centre
I am one of a team of people committed to supporting excellent education about faith in its many diverse regional, national and global forms. It is my firm professional, and personal, conviction that in order to do this work prejudice, extremism and racism towards, and within, faiths (and in our wider societies) must be acknowledged and addressed.
I have worked collaboratively with Media Cultured for many years now. I have confidence that its ethos, mission and the practical work it does in the UK, and overseas, addresses, and helps to mitigate, the myriad ways these social disorders manifest themselves.
I am happy to serve as a Trustee - to offer some positive, strategic and reflective guidance on how the organisation might develop - over the next two years. It is my sincere hope that eventually there will be no necessity for organisations like this to exist but, while there is, I will do my best to serve it with integrity and be a positive force for change.
