Calum has been with London CLT since 2011, when the organisation was bidding for the first CLT site in London at St Clement’s. During his time with London CLT, he has taken the organisation from having its first site identified, to securing four further sites in in Lewisham, Lambeth, Tower Hamlets and Redbridge, with more in the pipeline.
Until 2017, Calum previously worked as a Senior Organiser for Citizens UK. In this role he trained over 500 community leaders across the UK in organising and helped found Peckham Citizens, an alliance of 11 community organisations that work together to build the capacity of local people to tackle injustice in their neighbourhood. Calum has guest lectured at a number of academic institutions in the UK, holds a BArch (Part I) and a DipArch (Part II).
Calum lives in Peckham, South London. Having lived south of the river all his life, helping others organise and fight to stay in the neighbourhood they call home is a major part of why he does this work.
