Charlie has more than 20 years’ experience working in the homeless sector starting as a Janitor at St Mungo's and moving on to become Area Manger and Regional Head. 

Recently he has worked on a variety of consultancy projects including systems reviews, setting up businesses and also the development of  an environmental education app.

He joined Housing Justice September 2018.  Since then he's been working on the equipping shelters project. He's enjoying working with grass roots organisations and local communities coming up with new approaches and perspectives to help get people off the streets extending and bolstering the 700 bed shelter network.

The highlight so far has been getting the Glasshouse shelter in Islington up and running where a collective turned a derelict building into a therapeutic community space for rough sleepers.
