My interests are in areas where a statutory solution is infeasible.
I'm a Trustee at Action for Child Trauma International. We work on training people to deliver PTSD treatment to children after conflict. When there is a large number of children with PTSD, it often means that the state has collapsed or is not functioning.
I'm also the Product Lead at Samaritans. This is a suicide reduction charity in the UK & Ireland that provides 24/7 emotional support. When people are suicidal, it may be difficult or impossible to disclose this to friends, family or statutory services that may have obligations to act in ways the individual knows will be counter to their interests.
ACT International needs funding so that we can hire a permanent member of staff to operate the charity - we've outgrown what we can sustainably do with volunteers.
