Company/organisation: Friends, Families and Travellers
Chris has been Director of Friends, Families and Travellers for the past six years and before that occupied various senior posts within the public and voluntary sectors. Originally a town planner by profession, Chris has developed an increasing interest and involvement in issues around equality and social justice. In particular he calls for a greater focus on addressing the needs of those groups that are ‘chronically excluded’ and who frequently remain wholly untouched by mainstream initiatives aimed at choice, participation and empowerment. As a result such groups may become even more excluded and disenfranchised, widening the equality gap still further.
