We are pleased to welcome Bob to the Trustee Board of the Michael Causer Foundation.  Bob brings with him a wealth of experience in housing, volunteer programmes, developing new ideas and partnerships, fundraising and community connections.

I have worked with Bob over many years on a number of different projects mostly around health inclusion and service delivery for vulnerable and excluded groups. His level of expertise is extraordinary but more than this he has the rare ability to put that across in a way that is easily understood by anybody. Bob is excellent at navigating through the often difficult world of funding and budgets and has the community and stakeholders at the heart of everything he does.
