A New Port in the Storm…




It seems so bittersweet when you type it.

I will be finishing up this week to spend time on paternity leave looking after my son, Finn, before starting work in January 2014 as Chief Operating Officer with Advocates For International Development.

It has been a real privilege to be involved with Ascension Trust and to play a small part in the great work that our thousands of volunteers are doing across the world.

It has been exciting to see how the work has developed in the last three years, and to know how many people have been impacted by our work.

So it is sad to leave.

But I will be moving on to a new and challenging role, in a charity that is doing work that I am deeply passionate about: using law for good, and helping with international development.

So it is also exciting.

And a little scary.

I am hugely looking forward to getting stuck into my new role, and the new challenges ahead. It will be an incredible chance to learn, probably quite stressful at times, but most certainly worth the risk.

So I really hope, like the lighthouse in the picture, that I’ll be able to get rooted down quickly, stand firm through the storms, and make a difference in the world.

And not get covered in seaweed.

That would not be as exciting.
