Senior Leadership Team
Graeme Hodge – Chief Executive
Graeme joined All We Can in 2016 and in December 2018 became our Chief Executive. Graeme is passionately committed to ‘seek for tomorrow by acting today, until this world is as it was always meant to be’. Driven by faith, and a love of community, he is an activist for social justice and equality.
Graeme is a husband and a father to two amazing daughters. He is an active member and leader in his local church and, as a family, they are deeply embedded in their community and the development of it. Graeme’s work has enabled him to develop engaged and active movements of people that are committed to creating a more just and fair world for everyone, ending extreme poverty and tackling issues of social injustice and inequality.
As an innovative professional, Graeme has worked in a variety of connected leadership roles in the third and private sectors for over 20 years. Before joining the All We Can team in April 2016, Graeme spent several years in the corporate and private sector involved in consultancy and also worked with a range of UK based charities. He has had considerable previous experience, deeply involved in international development, and public engagement initiatives in this sector.
