Tim has had a career in youth work and services to young people for over 40 years, beginning in a Sheffield youth club, a youth officer in Reading, Portsmouth, head of the local authority youth services in Hampshire and West Sussex, an Ofsted inspector and, finally, consultant and adviser.
In 2012, Tim worked as a temporary project officer for Motiv8 and this was where he first experienced the high quality of the organisation’s work. Subsequently, Tim joined the Board of Trustees (in 2013) and served for three years, resigning to concentrate on writing a book. This was published in February 2019 and entitled “Keeping Them off the Streets – a youth work story.”
Returning as a Trustee in 2020, Tim is particularly interested in fostering the ‘links’ between field work staff and the Board and advising on youth work quality, evaluation and impact
