Andrew Scadding

Chief executive, Thai Children's Trust

Andrew Scadding has been in and around fundraising since 1967, as a fundraiser, trustee and database programmer. Currently incarnated as chief executive of Thai Children's Trust (formerly Pattaya Orphanage Trust) , ‘probably the best job in the world’, which he has held since 1999 ‘thanks to a very tolerant board of trustees’, he also chairs the Trustees of the Prisoners of Conscience Appeal Fund. He is married ‘for more years than I care to admit’, a relieved parent, happy grandparent, devoted dog walker and cheery iconoclast.

Dame Suzi has it right, but there's more to it

Yesterday Dame Suzi Leather issued a warning to charities that much will change when present contractual arrangements end in 2011. She is right, and for more reasons than she gave.

A reflection on MPs expenses.  Start the New Year with a smile!

Cut to the core, as it used to say in some ad or other. The MPs’ expenses row isn’t about their claims for expenses, its about weak management and the alleged exploitation of that weakness by a relatively small group of presumably unscrupulous or amoral individuals.

Charities running prisons - golden opportunity or poisoned chalice?

Everyone should visit a prison at least once, especially those who think running prisons is an appropriate activity for charities, so they know what is done in their name.

The 'D' word.  A Gothic fantasy.

Gentle fundraiser, come with me on a quick visit to a world very different from our own.It is a nasty and cruel world where people hate each other and do ugly things, especially to their nearest -who are seldom, if ever, their dearest.
