Edward oversees the CSJ’s innovative set of programmes.
These include programmes to connect politicians and other leading thinkers with the reality of poverty in Britain; ensure frontline organisations have a strong voice in government policy making; and supporting the most effective grassroot charities to scale.
Prior to this he was the Managing Director at the Centre for Social Justice and a Special Advisor in the Cameron government with a particular focus on welfare and work, criminal justice and social impact.
He is driven by a desire to support the most disadvantaged to be given every opportunity to reach their full potential and the role of government, business and charity within that.
He has previously worked with think tanks, as a consultant in the police and education sectors, as a teacher on negotiation at the London School of Economics, and at the London Stock Exchange.
He is a regular media commentator appearing at conferences and on national broadcast outlets along with writing articles for the print media.
