James is part of our award-winning public affairs team – it’s his job to get the sector’s voice heard in government. James leads SEUK’s programme of political work, which includes its main political campaign, the Social Economy Alliance, and managing the Secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group on Social Enterprise.

James has more than 20 years’ experience in his field, having lobbied government for the Royal Town Planning Institute, worked for an MP and been a Councillor in East London.

James is impressed by the breadth and dynamism of the social enterprise sector, but when pressed to name a particular member that stands out, he was struck by the work that Bevan Healthcare CIC is doing in Bradford – his home town.
