Our London-based team is responsible for work here in the UK, overseen by a board of trustees.
Three directors also serve the international family, joining leaders from other Lifewords organisations to make up our global leadership team.

Danielle studied politics, philosophy, and economics – before moving to north Belfast for two years of church and community work. She has worked for a web start up, a Christian political campaign group, and done some writing and radio journalism. While at Lifewords she has led communications and programme development work. She now heads up the global team, as well as overseeing work in the UK. She also serves as Vice-Chair of the Forum of Bible Agencies International. Danielle has been part of Lifewords since 2002, and Executive Director since 2011.
