Ed has co-led Together for Peace since 2003. Through that work, and also separately through his involvement in a wide range of voluntary programmes across Leeds, he has extensive experience of: community innovation and development, especially in disadvantaged areas; project and event management; facilitation; inter-community and cohesion work; communications and marketing; youth work; creative approaches to sustainability; and more. He completed an MA in Peace Studies with distinction – from Bradford University, alongside his work with T4P. Outside of T4P, he co-runs projects including South Leeds Life newspaper, the Holbeck Viaduct project, and Leeds Repair Cafe – and is involved in local politics via the Green Party. He lives in Beeston (south Leeds), and is married with two cracking young kids.
