After ten years managing innovative health projects, Fiona studied at the School for Social Entrepreneurs, becoming one of its first Fellows. She has been ill since 1997 and combines these experiences in her writing and work on disability, lived experience and questions of social justice. Fiona chairs the Disability Advisory Group at St Martin-in-the-Fields and leads on the annual conference on Disability & Church, in partnership with Inclusive Church. She is a storyteller in the Inclusive Church resource book on Disability and was recently elected an independent Trustee. Part of St Martin’s since childhood, Fiona grew up working in a soup kitchen and a folk club, lived in a hostel for homeless men, sang with South African township choirs and now knits hats for people seeking refuge or asylum.
