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.

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.
