Stephen brings experience from his career in industry and education including skills in planning, strategic decisions, marketing and communications. During his time as an Oxford City Councillor he experienced working with the City's traditional homeless shelters and accommodation. Stephen supported the local work of Crisis Skylight's accredited courses, workshops, advice and training. 

He explains what brought him to Mayday Trust.

It became obvious to me that however well-meaning these (traditional homeless shelters) were, they effectively institutionalise the state of homelessness on a permanent basis. What attracted me to the Mayday Trust was the Mayday Inspire Model where people are treated as individuals so that they can start living an independent and secure life again. I'm ready to do everything I can to help that model flourish.
