Dave – Co-Founder and Chief Executive
Dave established the charity in 1990 after qualifying as a chef and then undertaking youth work. Dave is passionate about meeting the needs of the disadvantaged and the marginalised and recognising the potential in everyone. Dave has overseen the development, change and growth of Urban Outreach. As the charity continues to innovate and look at new ways of providing effective support, Dave remains deeply committed to building strong partnerships between churches, organisations and individuals in Bolton and advocating for the needs of the poor.
