Russell has spent much of his life working with young people, a large part of this as a secondary school teacher in Suffolk.
He currently work as an Operations Officer for a large national charity that provides young people with the skills and experiences to develop and achieve.

“I love being a part of Outreach Youth and wish that such a fantastic charity had been around when I was growing up; discovering who I was and what I wanted in life.”

When I’m not working he loves being in the outdoors; walking, canoeing, cycling and camping. He’s currently a member of Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue where he volunteers as a Search Technician.
