General Lord Ramsbotham GCB CBE

General Lord Ramsbotham held the position of Her Majesty’s Chief inspector for Prisons for England and Wales from 1995 to 2001 and has an extensive knowledge of the homeless sector. As a consequence he has great empathy and understanding of the issues confronting both individuals and society. We are most fortunate to benefit from his insights.
