Danny Curtin has worked in the voluntary sector since he was knee high. Growing up on the grounds of a Leonard Cheshire Home for people with physical disabilities he was surrounded by an environment of equality, empowerment and dedication to genuine human dignity. Since these formative years he was worked in the faith based sector, in learning disabilities and in youth work. As CEO of a youth charity for five years, Danny developed his role as a fundraiser and strategic manager, moving on to work as an advisor to other organisations helping to develop their capacity to support more people.

He now works with many charities in community work, UK poverty, youth social exclusion, faith based work and international development. But with all the other organisations seeking Danny's support, he says with no hesitation that his first priority is his part time role as Executive Director at Beyond Words.

Danny is also a magician, author and dedicated theatre fan.
