Head of Volunteering,
Michael is currently Head of Volunteering at Crisis UK, having worked previously at Barnardo’s and social housing provider, Riverside, in national volunteering roles. He has been responsible for and is particularly interested in innovation in volunteering. At Barnardo’s he worked closely with NESTA to develop the first ‘third age’ internship for retired executives. At Riverside, this focus on new approaches to volunteers bore fruit through working with the Cabinet Office to encourage healthier eating and lower energy use in some of most deprived neighborhoods in the UK. Michael is also a core group member of NNVIA.
