Our People

As a movement, our volunteers are our lifeblood. We have support across the public, private and third sectors and, whilst being predominantly UK based, across the world!

You can find out more about many of those who are involved in our Core Team here but please don't assume this is an exhaustive list - our team's energies and availability waxes and wanes as their life and business interests consume them, so this team list is fluid! And there are many more volunteers involved in our Thought and Action Groups and Area Networks.

Our Core Team

The Core Team provides light touch strategic direction and supporting infrastructure for the EFS movement with hands-on delivery co-ordinated through a network of volunteer hubs. This structure enables us to keep the ethos, knowledge and activity together and 'moving' whilst allowing for our volunteers coming and going as their availability allows.

You can find out more about how this works here LINK. Our hubs are supported by our two Strategy Directors, who also host our radio show!

Our Alumni

We always say that once you've been involved with the movement as part of our Core Team, you never really leave!

Here are our alumni, many of them were 'lent' to us as secondees from their organisations (if we've missed you off, please do shout!).

Most of them are still supporting the movement, at least in spirit if not in practise, and they most definitely continue to fly the flag for the cause!
