Edd joined Blagrave in January 2018. He leads the The Listening Fund: a collaboration between Blagrave, Children in Need, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, The Tudor Trust and The National Lottery Community Fund – to improve organisations’ accountability to young people. Edd is also one of the Trust’s Designated Safeguarding Officers.
Edd has worked and volunteered across the youth sector for many years and is a Trustee of his local Citizens Advice Bureau. He works at our London office.
Edd is motivated both by the boldness of some young people’s visions for an equitable society, and also by the simplicity of some of their demands: for good education, secure housing and rewarding work.
