A darkened room

A personal take on asylum, refugee and migration issues, and occasional other stuff.


After 20 years knocking about the refugee charity world, and constantly being amazed and humbled by the people I meet. This is a collection of thoughts that can’t be reduced to 140 characters. At least not by me.

Currently heading up the amazing Hope Projects (www.hope-projects.org.uk) which houses, supports and advises destitute asylum seekers in the West Midlands.

Chair of All Saints Action Network, bringing about change through social enterprise in Wolverhampton.

Anglican, cyclist, cricket aficionado, Wolves fan, sci fi fanboy, European, eclectic musical tastes that keep cycling back to appalling 70s prog rock. Throws things at the radio whenever anyone speaks for the Home Office.
