Andrew has spent the majority of his career in public affairs and communications, including a number of senior roles in the charity sector

A trained teacher, he was Director of Communications and latterly Interim Chief Executive of the National Childminding Association, before joining Children’s Hospices UK as Director of External Affairs in 2010. Shortly after joining, he helped lead the organisation through a merger to form Together for Short Lives, the UK charity for children’s palliative care. 

Andrew contracted viral meningitis as a child and is passionate about the work Meningitis Now does both in trying to eradicate meningitis and supporting those affected by it. 

“I am delighted to be joining the Board of Meningitis Now at such an exciting time in the new organisation’s life. There is still so much to do to make sure that everyone can identify the signs of meningitis, to develop vaccines and support those affected by meningitis. I am looking forward to working with the Board and staff team to continue to make real progress in all these areas”.
