Meet the Trustees

Welcome to our Board of Directors. As trustees of a Christian faith-based organisation our Board believes in the God who is Love and in the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. Our trustees volunteer with Crossroads as an act of service and worship. Their connections with Tower Hamlets are varied but all are committed to the hope that Crossroads brings to people in our community who are hurting and wanting change.

Craig Herd, Chair

Craig joined the Board of Directors in October 2014 and was immediately appointed to the role of Treasurer given his background as a management accountant and his experience in change management.  Craig has brought a wealth of financial knowledge and professional expertise to Crossroads as he has led on our financial management and strategy development, including navigating Crossroads through a period of significant change. Craig was appointed Acting Chair in 2021 and Chair in 2022.

Phil Slaney

Phil had been a supporter of Crossroads for many years when he was recruited to the Board of Directors in April 2015. Phil has a background in careers guidance and life coaching and is a trained psychotherapeutic counsellor, with his own private practice.  Phil takes the lead at Board level on clinical matters.  When Phil is not helping out at Crossroads he is busy in his local church.
