About me

DSC_0002I juggle working – mainly for NGOs – with trying to write for a living.

I will write for anyone who is willing to put up with my ramblings. In the past my ramblings have been found in The Guardian, The Daily TelegraphLeft Foot Forward, The Great Outdoors Magazine (TGO)New EuropeThe International Business Times, Liberal Conspiracy, and Football Rascal (to name just a few).

I have also spoken on Russia Today (RT), the BBC (both local and the World Service) and spoken at events at at UNHCR, universities and alongside Members of Parliament.

I hold a Bsc in Social Policy from the University of Bath and a MA in Human Rights from the University of Sussex where I wrote my thesis on reconciling human rights and religion. Since then I have gone onto work for a series of secular and faith based organisations in Brussels, Westminster and abroad. Although predominantly based around human rights, I work on a wide range of social justice issues.

I am actively involved with Amnesty International and a number of other NGOs. My passions spread far and wide including real ale, mountaineering and much more.

People/Organisations that have been stupid enough to employ me in the past include:

I am currently working for the African Palliative Care Association.

Feel free to get in touch, I am always interested in what you have to say!

    Steve, I also received that scam and was quite surprised when I read it. Could you please give a more accurate amount or value in money terms an immigrate can receive or be entitled to such as housing benefits or lodging allowance including a single or married with children. Would they be entitled to free medical care for a single or married with children which cannot be really measured and can be quite open depending on the medical care needed besides the weekly sum that you had shown. I would like to pass the information you give so that a scam can be rectified and a true picture be given. The amount you stated would not even cover renting a room and wondered how these poor immigrants can manage especially if he has a family and if so surely the social services would step in. Possibly that £250 a week that had been mentioned was a rough estimate of what an immigrant may be entitled to. Waiting for you reply.. .
