What I do

Paul is the Director of Stay Up Late and one of the co-founders of the charity (having been the bass player in the punk band ‘Heavy Load’).


Previously he was also the National Co-Production Adviser for Think Local Act Personal, a national partnership transforming health and social care. He has also worked for a not-for-profit supported housing provider as their Involvement Manager and managed a group home for four adults with learning disabilities.

He is passionate about reducing social isolation and campaigning for the rights of people with learning disabilities. He is married with four children, he has some quite nerdish tendencies surrounding local history, and probably spends way too much money buying records.
