Aidan has run inquiries and written reports for a range of charities, including the Sickle Cell Society (with the APPG on Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia), Bond (with the APPG on the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development), Alcohol Health Alliance UK and The Hepatitis C Trust.
The report he wrote following the sickle cell care inquiry, No One’s Listening, received widespread national media coverage, prompted NHS England to launch a wide-ranging sickle cell care pathway review and was described by Labour shadow minister Liz Kendall in Parliament as “one of the most powerful, serious and substantial reports I have read in a long time in this place and while working in the health and care field”.
Aidan specialises in supporting charities in the health and refugee/migrant rights sectors with parliamentary engagement. He leads our work as The Hepatitis C Trust’s policy & parliamentary team and has worked with charities including the Refugee Council, the British Red Cross and We Belong, helping the latter with their successful campaign to persuade the Conservative Government to halve the route to settlement for young migrants who have lived in the UK for half their lives or more.
He has worked for Principle since October 2016, having previously worked for a not-for-profit organisation running school improvement programmes and in the House of Commons office of Green Party MP Caroline Lucas as part of his Masters degree in Parliamentary Politics.
