Ed Anderton joined Access in July 2015 as the Strategy and Policy Manager. His primary focus was managing an open consultation for its capacity building programme, alongside setting up systems and reporting processes. Prior to joining Access, Ed spent three years at Nominet Trust, the UK’s leading #techforgood funder, where he led their involvement in the 360giving open data initiative, developed systems for their Triple Helix impact reporting process, and was principal researcher for the Nominet Trust 100. He began his career working in performing arts education, which led circuitously into community development, education consultancy, conflict resolution (mediation and training), and a stint in Whitehall (BIS) working on improving the regulation of the social sector.
