Meet the team
CARE staff at our Away Day June 16
CARE’s headquarters are in Westminster, just a short distance from the Houses of Parliament. Most members of our staff are based here and we maintain close contact with colleagues working from home and those in our regional offices in Northern Ireland and Scotland.
Lyndon Bowring has served as CARE’s Executive Chairman since 1983. He is an ordained Elim minister and has been involved in many Christian initiatives over the years, on Boards and Advisory Councils, networking with other leaders and speaking at events such as Spring Harvest and Keswick (often with his wife Celia, who writes the Prayer Diary).
Nola Leach began with CARE in 1997 as Head of Caring Services before her appointment as Chief Executive in 2006. She is also Head of the Leadership Programme and CARE’s Public Policy team. Nola serves many other ministries and organisations such as the Christian CEO’s Conference, Girls’ Brigade, the European Leaders Forum and the Christian Embassy here in London.
Daniel Boucher has been CARE’s Director of Public Affairs since 2006 as part of the Public Policy team analysing issues, planning and developing short and long term campaign strategies and building key relationships. He maintains a constant presence in Westminster and works with CARE’s Policy Officers and politicians in Belfast and Edinburgh.
Gareth Davies joined CARE in 2007 as Development Officer and is now our UK Director. He focuses on motivating and informing the church about engagement with public figures and bodies at all levels on CARE’s policy areas.
