Voluntary Sector, Worth Unlimited
Tim is CEO of Worth Unlimited, a charity and social enterprise working with children, young people, families and communities experiencing vulnerability and marginalisation. He has been working with marginalised young people for 25 years and is passionate about creating opportunities and for them to believe in themselves so they can achieve their full potential.
He is also the Board champion for young people of Thrive Together, a charity set up to mobilise a movement of people, especially those of faith, to tackle issues of poverty in Birmingham. Living in whats commonly described as a deprived estate and being a foster carer since 2002, he is passionate about grassroots responses to issues of poverty using asset based approaches.
Tim was one of the originators of the proposals to establish the Child Poverty Commission feeling that it was scandalous that so many children in the city were living in poverty and that people needed to come together to bring about solutions.
