Head of Development

As the Development Manager at Breathworks, Colin focuses on the provision of accessible, community-driven mindfulness programmes, through building partnerships with health and public sector organisations as well as funders.

Colin is also responsible for building the evidence base for the Breathworks programmes, supporting our brilliant research and evaluation team as well as partnering with university and health service researchers.

Colin began exploring meditation in 1989, and came to Breathworks in 2008 inspired by Vidyamala’s vision of sharing mindfulness to help improve lives for people with pain and other challenging health conditions.  He enjoys working in a talented and altruistic team, commuting to the Breathworks Manchester office from his family home in West Yorkshire.

When not getting his children to under-10 football matches, drama rehearsals and swimming lessons, Colin likes to play musical instruments, having been a trumpet player in jazz and afrobeat groups.
