Richard Newson

Media Officer

Richard manages NCB’s communications including press work, email and social media.

He has worked in charity communications for the last 15 years, coordinating many different aspects of communications work including media coverage, events, design and print work and digital media.

A master of the written word, Richard has produced hundreds of articles, reports, websites, blogs and tweets over the years for a range of audiences – from MPs and sector professionals to children and young people themselves.

Richard once had a job delivering geese by quadbike – he won’t say any more, but feel free to ask!

I find it really inspiring to work on behalf of children, so that they can achieve their potential and make a positive contribution to society. The breadth of NCB’s work means that no two days are alike and you never know who will be on the other end when you pick up the phone.
