National Director

George W X Barker, director@sexpression.org.uk  

Welcome to Sexpression:UK! I’m delighted to have been elected as National Director and I am looking forward to building upon the amazing work of our branches and previous national committees. It is an exciting time for the charity as we move towards compulsory relationships and sex education.

I’m a fifth year medical student at University College London and have been involved with (and coordinated) Sexpression at my branch for 5 years. I have enjoyed delivering sessions in schools, as well as training up volunteers and working with our university and local organisations. Now I’m building on our relationships with our partner organisations, coordinating our media and press relationships and working with the trustees. I’ve been fortunate to be able to represent Sexpression in Parliament, at working groups, in the media and at national events, and look forward to continuing this work in the future alongside working for, and on behalf of, our wonderful volunteers, branches and trustees.

Branches Director

Adam Foster, branches@sexpression.org.uk

I first joined Sexpression 4 years ago as a volunteer in Sheffield and have been as active as I could, after finding out how much I loved both the activity and the cause. Having been a range of roles on the Branch Committee, including Coordinator, I believe this next step as Branches Director will allow me to use my experiences, passion for supportive pastoral care and strong ability to communicate on the behalf of others to allow me to help branches thrive. In going into my final year of medicine but couldn't imagine a year of University without Sexpression.

Hello! I am Liam and this will be my fourth year with Sexpression:UK. I am currently in my fourth year of a chemistry degree at the University of Edinburgh. I am so excited to finally be working with Sexpression on a National level as my experiences with the Edinburgh branch helped to shape my initial years at university.

Advocacy Director

Rachel Kerr, advocacy@sexpression.org.uk

I'm Rachel and I'm this year's advocacy director for Sexpression:UK. I have been a member of Sexpression Glasgow for 5 years, and have had various roles on the committee including branch co-ordinator. I've also been looking after social media this year as part of the Sexpression:UK social media team. I'm now looking forward to taking on the role of advocacy director, especially as we move towards statutory SRE in England and Wales in the coming year. I hope that Sexpression:UK can be a voice advocating for inclusive and comprehensive SRE, so look our for our campaigns!

Training Director

Alice Luesley, training@sexpression.org.uk

Hi, I’m Alice! I am going into my fourth year as a medical student and I’ve been involved with Sexpression as a member of the Sheffield branch for the past four years. I am super excited to be involved on a national level.

Public speaking used to be my biggest fear but now I love to facilitate lessons and represent Sexpression. I have met so many fantastic, diverse people because of Sexpression and hope to give back some of what I have learnt from these people as your Training Director this year.

Child Protection Director

Dominique Al-Hindawi, childprotection@sexpression.org.uk

Hello! I’m a 3rd year medical student at Cardiff University and have been a part of Sexpression:UK since the start of my time at university. I am also the Training Coordinator and Child Protection Officer of the Cardiff branch this year. I’ve been passionate about improving RSE since I was still at school, so finding a society at university dedicated to doing just that seemed like fate! The work we do as a charity has such a positive impact on the lives of young people and couldn’t be more important than after the recent political decision to make SRE compulsory. I am both honoured and excited to be able to represent the organisation I love on a national level and hope that this is going to be a wonderful year for Sexpression:UK!

 

A new Externals Director and Fundraising Director will be appointed in September 2018
