Director, Westminster Abbey Institute, and author

If you feel in your belly that you have something to give, gather the courage to be seen by others and put yourself forwards. Think of it as service not ego. The world needs all the help it can get.

Claire is founding Director of Westminster Abbey Institute to revitalise moral and spiritual values in public life and service. The Institute offers a Fellows’ Programme for younger public servants to equip them for their demanding roles in service of others which Claire runs.

She has degrees in theology and ecological ethics, and writes and speaks on ethics in medicine, ecology and public service. She has written and spoken of her cancer treatment and has just published ‘I, Julian’, a fictional autobiography of the 14th century writer and visionary Julian of Norwich.
