    Paul Morrish

    Chief Executive

    Paul joined LandAid in 2015 having worked in a wide range of charities and not for profit organisations over a 25 year period. He works with our Board of Trustees to ensure LandAid has a clear strategy and is equipped to deliver that strategy. He leads a small leadership team, who in turn lead our larger - but still small - and outstanding team.

He is always impressed by the best that the property industry can achieve, and sees huge potential in its companies and staff working together to achieve social change.

  • Sean Tizzard

    Head of Programmes & Impact

    Sean is our Head Of Programmes & Impact. After twelve years of working at the Big Lottery Fund in a number of managerial roles, Sean is now excited to lead on the development of LandAid’s grant-making and professional advice service. He’s keen to work collaboratively to explore innovative ways of demonstrating LandAid’s considerable impact.

    At the Big Lottery Fund, Sean headed up the delivery of the Local Sustainability Fund and was drawn to the difference that meaningful professional advice can make within the voluntary sector. For a while, he headed up the Fund’s homelessness policy work and was struck by the opportunities to solve a social travesty such as this.

    As a trustee at the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Community Foundation, he helped to oversee a transition towards a new form of grant-making. He then developed his volunteering and trustee experience when helping to design and deliver the grant programme of the Children’s Health Fund.
