David’s heart is in community and personal development, and has recently joined as a volunteer and trustee to share his skills and enthusiasm for the Trust’s mission. He’s a gay man and is about to civilly partner his partner.
He currently works as a management trainer and coach with the consultancy, Your people Potential, and is growing his own practice as a mindfulness teacher.
In 1990s, he set up partnerships with public health, local government and the charitable sector to develop LGB youth services, and then managed those services (Way Out, Oxfordshire) on behalf of the partnership and The Terrence Higgins Trust. His career evolved into organisational and workforce development as Director of THT in Wales, with a focus on campaigning for better social justice in community service delivery, as the Welsh Assembly implemented devolved social and health policy.
Today, David works part-time, preferring to spend his time on the allotment, at the lido, singing with the LGBT choir, SingOut Cambridge and occasionally supporting the Trust’s youth groups.
