Dan is a head of department at a local secondary school, and is involved in engaging students there in democratic participation. He felt his views weren’t being represented in local matters and wanted to change that. He brings ten years’ experience teaching and managing to our set of skills, including important insights into youth engagement and participation. He’s lived in Bradford for eight years with his wife and two young children.
“I realised this was my chance to actually make a difference and contribute – rather than just feeling disheartened or complaining about what wasn’t being done.”
