Tim Mungeam has more than 25 years experience in senior roles across the community transformation, education, health, and families sectors. Originally a youth worker, Tim’s roles have included leading a UK wide gap-year programme for 18-30 year olds, co-founding a parents and families charity – Parentalk – and its spin off initiative, Dads Unlimited and spent two years as OD Director for Oasis Community Learning, now one of the largest education chains in the country.
Tim was Chief Executive of Springboard for Children, which offers a literacy lifeline to city children and the Forgiveness Project, an organisation which uses the real stories of victims and perpetrators around the world to explore alternatives to revenge, retaliation and hatred.
In late 2016, he set up and ran a London-based safe house for 28 unaccompanied minors arriving in the UK from the ‘Jungle’ refugee camp. He continues to act as a special advisor to Refugee Youth Service who provide safe spaces for unaccompanied young people arriving at refugee ‘hot spots’ across Europe. He is a former trustee of Redthread which provides health and well-being services to young people presenting to A&Es in major trauma hospitals in London, Nottingham and Birmingham.
Tim now works alongside a wide variety of pioneering, mission-focused organisations and social entrepreneurs in the third, public and private sectors, with an emphasis on organisational development and strategy, communication, CSR and leadership development. A husband and father to three teenage boys, Tim often describes himself as an urgent optimist – passionate about people, purpose, potential and partnership and he tries to live this out within and beyond his own glorious (often lively) community of Peckham, South London.
