David Pilkington
  • Bio

Dave has over 20 years experience working with traditionally hard to reach Communities mainly in Tower Hamlets, East London. After working for many years in Youth work he took a brief Hiatus and moved to South Africa for three years developing Food security projects in Townships around Durban. His most recent role has seen him start to look at ways to tackle the high levels of inactivity in the community of Poplar where he lives and works. Recognising that people who don’t engage in an active lifestyle face many barriers he is constantly looking at different ways to overcome these. He is passionate about developing community and believes that to sustain higher levels of activity amongst more deprived communities there needs to be a more communal approach.
