Ryan Burke joins team CWNN as Head of Programmes

We are delighted to welcome Ryan Burke into the new role of Head of Programmes at the Choir with No Name.

Ryan joins the CWNN central team from Look Ahead, with more than 15 years’ experience in social care and a decade of working within the homeless sector. Ryan has also worked with our London choir, for the past 2 and a half years, as their Choir Manager.

Throughout the pandemic Ryan helped to set up and manage emergency accommodation for people who were homeless during lockdown. Based in a hotel, the service provided a safe environment whilst working with people to find long term accommodation and end their homelessness for good.

Stepping into his new position with team CWNN Ryan will oversee the development of our new and exciting choir projects, as well as working closely with our Choir Managers to look after our four existing choirs.

Upon accepting the job Ryan said; “I’m absolutely thrilled to be taking on this new role for the Choir with No Name. It’s been a tough time for everyone over the past year, but I am excited for what the future holds for our community and I can’t wait to see our members getting back out there to perform again!”

Welcome aboard Ryan!
