Local Authority (Dartford Borough Council) Trustee
Danny has always been passionate about education and advocating on behalf of children and young people. As a teenager he was part of the UK Youth Parliament (UKYP), and this experience motivated him to stand for elected office in 2008 at age 19, making him one of the youngest elected councillors in the UK at the time. During this time as a Councillor, Danny studied politics at Essex university, whilst working part time as a youth worker for Essex County Council to help finance his studies.
Since graduating in 2011, Danny has worked for a number of large social housing providers, specialising in delivering change and transformation projects and Lean continuous improvement.
Danny previously served as a Non Executive Director of South Essex Partnership Trust (SEPT) and as a member of Essex County Fire & Rescue Services audit committee.
Danny moved to Ebbsfleet Garden City with his wife in 2016 using the government Help to Buy scheme. He was elected to Dartford Council in 2019 and has since joined the Ebbsfleet Community Board and appointed as a governor of a local academies trust.
He is focussing his energies on tackling the housing crisis, planning reform and reducing homelessness.
