James Murray

Ormiston Trust’s Chief Executive Officer

A warm welcome to all those involved in the Ormiston#WeWill Programme. Thank you for working with young people to deliver significant additional, meaningful, and sustainable social action opportunities up and down the country. Together, our combined efforts will showcase outstanding sector-leader social action activities that will influence education practice at a national level. We have a great team who I know will inspire many 1000’s of young people.

Aneela Bukhari

#WeWill Programme Manager

I am particularly excited to be working on the #WeWill campaign, as I have always had a passion for Social Action initiatives and have worked on several projects that aimed to promote social entrepreneurship and consciousness. I believe that students should be given opportunities to work together to find solutions that would create a positive social impact, whilst ensuring that young people’s voices are at the forefront of all collaborations.

#WeWill Finance Manager

I have been handling the Financial Management of Ormiston Trust since 2014. I am thrilled to be leading the Finance Management of the newly developed youth social action campaign, #WeWill, alongside my finance role at OT. My main aim for #WeWill, is to ensure that the finance monitoring requirements are robust and efficient, enabling everyone to make the best use of the funds available for the project to engage with as many young people as possible, whilst meeting all the reporting requirements for our funding partner and OT Trustees.

#WeWill Lead Education Resource Coordinator

I have worked within the education sector for over 20 years and have been fortunate to work with pupils from Key Stage 1 to KS5. I am passionate about making a difference in the lives of young people. Every child has the right to a good education and the skills needed to navigate life. The #WeWill programme is an amazing opportunity for young people to apply their learning and make a difference in their local community whilst learning essential skills

#WeWill Comms and Events Officer

I am delighted to be working across the communications and events management for the #WeWill campaign. I want to place a spotlight on the fantastic social action activities young people are spearheading through student-community engagement by spreading the word about how these initiatives are making a positive difference. My aim is to highlight why the importance of equipping young people with the right tools to become confident individuals throughout education and into their working life – is worth shouting about!
