After being raised by a single mum in a council house, Roger began his career fighting for social justice at the Joseph Rowntree Foundation before becoming director of communications, policy and campaigns at Shelter. He then became Chief Executive of RECLAIM, which fights to ensure that working class people are represented and heard wherever decisions are made that affect their lives. He is currently setting up a new venture about class and climate, which will pilot ways to highlight how devastating climate change will be for many working class communities in the UK, and ensure that there are more working class voices in the debate about how we best tackle this emergency. Roger is also vice-chair of Victim Support, and a member of the Mayor of London's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Group. In his spare time he lets Spurs prey on his optimism.
