Contact details

As CEO of Global One 2015, my role is to ensure our commitment to international development is in line with our broader goal; to develop a world where women of all beliefs are empowered to make their own choices and transform their communities, inspired by an understanding of faith and cultural perspectives.

I believe that now more than ever the Cadbury Centre has a vital role to play in peace building and community cohesion by its contribution to the public understanding of Religion. I hope in my own way I am able to support the Centre in its endeavours.
