Bringing Hope

Robin Thompson

Executive Director and co-founder of Bringing Hope.

I work directly with clients and their families helping them to transform their lives through showing them hope and change are possible. I also provide inspirational leadership to the organisation ensuring it achieves its mission and strategy.


Bringing Hope is rooted in a vision I had more than two decades ago following the loss of a very close friend. Born and raised in the inner city area of Birmingham, I have first hand experience of the problems faced by those of the ‘forgotten generation’.


For more than 20 years, I have worked with socially excluded young people and families from different ethno-cultural backgrounds. I was the first black African-Caribbean lead commissioner for children, young people and families for Birmingham Drug Action Team.


It’s my personal experience that, through robust and innovative approaches, change can happen. I believe in a second chance for all.


Co-founder & Co Director of Bringing Hope.

I am a frontline worker engaging with families, communities and young people to support their personal transformation and healing from past issues. I also ensure Bringing Hope delivers in line with its objectives and mission.


I have 25 years experience in the field of social, community, youth work, counselling and training, both as a practitioner and at management levels within the statutory and voluntary sectors.


I formerly worked as the National Director of Youth and Christian Education for England and Wales for the New Testament Church of God (one of the UK’s largest black majority Churches). I ministered and taught on youth development and empowerment in South, West and Central Africa, Jamaica, Europe, USA and across the UK.
