Our Trustees

All of our trustees are unpaid volunteers. They come from different backgrounds and use their collective experience to set the strategic goals for the organisation.

From time to time we need to recruit new trustees. This is done via an open recruitment process – all vacancies will be displayed on this website.

Richard Price – Chairman

Richard is a former probation officer and senior figure in the UK public affairs and communications industry, and he founded the EuroPR Group, where he was Managing Director from 1984 to 2009.  He served on the Board of the UK Public Relations Consultants Association for 15 years, and has also held posts in advisory bodies to government.

Fiona Shaw – Treasurer

A qualified accountant, Fiona started her accountancy career as an auditor before moving to work exclusively in the not-for-profit sector for over 25 years.  From 2006-2013 she was Head of Finance at Water and Sanitation for the Urban Poor and prior to this was Head of Finance at Friends of the Earth.

Fiona has been a trustee of Prisoners Abroad since March 2002.
