Communities Executive

Andy joined the Cares team in January 2016. Since then he has worked with a cross section of members and community groups to develop a wide range of volunteering opportunities which not only engage volunteers, but also deliver a measurable impact for charities and groups.

He leads on Business in the Community’s digital inclusion project, Digital Assist, an initiative which utilises the expertise of volunteers to develop important life skills in people who have little to no experience using computers or the internet. This also includes the highly successful Silver Surfers’ Days, something Andy has a particular passion for given his extensive experience working in the older people’s charity sector.
