I hope your summer has gone well so far.
I just wanted to touch base with an update ahead of what will be a very busy remainder of the year on both the abortion and assisted suicide fronts, with expected attempts to change laws on both issues coming up later in the year.
Over the last 18 months, we have undertaken a major transformation and growth programme at the charity.
The programme is an ambitious, innovative strategy that the organisation is building out across education, media, public affairs and digital, in order to deliver large-scale positive change to policy and culture, which will save lives and support women with unplanned pregnancies.
Thanks to your generous support, this programme has already resulted in a number of high-profile successes and we are now working to further build on these successes through a significant expansion of our Westminster-based team, with the organisation currently recruiting for a number of positions (more on that below).
This transformation and growth programme has been led by our leadership team who are overseen by an expanded board of trustees.
I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce you to our leadership team who I work with, so you are familiar with the people who lead our work to save lives.
Are you looking to leave a corporate career and instead use your skills and energy to make a significant positive difference to this world?
We are currently hiring for a number of positions across media, public affairs, digital and operations.
In particular, we are looking to urgently fill positions in our Public Affairs team, to ensure that we have the right team in place ahead of our opposition making further attempts to introduce radical changes to legislation.
We are looking for highly-skilled, hard-working, professional individuals to join us.
If this is of interest to you or if you know of anyone that would be suitable for one of the positions, please click the button below to view the roles we are looking to hire for and learn how to apply.
WESTMINSTER AWARD 2021
The Westminster Award for Human Life, Human Rights, and Human Dignity recognises extraordinary and notable work and achievements that safeguard the dignity and right to life of human beings. It was founded in 2013, a year after the death of Right To Life UK’s founder Phyllis Bowman DSG, in whose memory it is awarded.
The recipient of the Westminster Award is chosen by the Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Pro-Life Group and the Trustees of Right To Life UK, having taken advice from senior MPs and Peers in both Houses of the Westminster Parliament.
The first Westminster Award was given to the blind Chinese human rights lawyer and campaigner Chen Guangcheng, for his heroic work defending the rights of Chinese women and children victimised by their Government’s forced abortion and sterilisation policies.
This year the recipient of the award is human rights campaigner and Member of the House of Lords, Lord Alton.
Throughout his time in Parliament, Lord Alton has relentlessly championed the cause of the unborn and women facing crisis pregnancies.
Right To Life UK’s Westminster team have the honour of being able to work directly with Lord Alton on a regular basis. He is the key driver of pro-life activity in the House of Lords, inspiring a large group of Peers to join him in championing the rights of the vulnerable on this vitally important issue.
Congratulations to Lord Alton on being awarded the Westminster Award.
