Eleanor Riley - Trustee

I grew up in Liverpool, and first heard of The Choir With No Name after seeing the Liverpool choir perform at Light Night in the city several years ago. I am particularly interested in services which use creative engagement techniques, and loves that Choir with No Name helps people get support, find community and, arguably most importantly, have fun!

I have held senior positions across a number of national charities, and currently lead communications and policy at Redthread- a organisation that embeds youth work within the health sector. I am passionate about promoting innovative solutions to social issues, pushing for reform at a systems level.

I love finding creative ways to work alongside staff and beneficiaries to help tell their stories. I have written articles on why media training frontline staff is so valuable and headed up a national media training programme as part of my role at Catch22. By listening to and learning from teams - and to those who engage with services - I can ensure communications are authentic and impactful.
