Ben heads up the Operations Team at CTE working closely with Lorraine.
He joins CTE after 15 years of working to support voluntary and community sector organisations. In Reading, he ran a network for charities and community groups working with children, young people and families. More recently, Ben ran a not-for-profit company delivering health and care projects in partnership with a range of local charities across Bradford District and Craven.
Ben is a passionate advocate for relational ecumenical partnerships and has seen God move in many ways through unity initiatives as a church youth worker, through the first 24-7 Prayer ‘Boiler Room’ in Reading, and through the practical support, encouragement and grant funding of grass-roots Christian social action projects.
Ben is married to Joanna and serves as a Deacon and part of the Leadership Team at his local Elim church, where he is the Treasurer and coordinates the audio-visual facilities. He enjoys walking in the local countryside, as well as flying over it as a glider pilot.
Ben works part-time (0.6 FTE) for CTE.
