Tom is also on the Board of Trustees for the South West International Development Network, a charity which aims to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of organisations working towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the South West of England.

However, we are very happy to welcome Tom Edwards as her successor. Tom fully subscribes to the essence of our organisation – empowerment. We at PHASE Worldwide strive to empower everyone associated with us whether they be employees, supporters, volunteers, patrons, trustees, partners or those living in remote Nepalese villages.”
