Rob Alcroft

Chair of Trustees

After studying mathematics, Rob’s working life began as a professional musician, followed by an entrepreneurial period in furniture manufacture and retail.

After meeting his now wife, Diana, he moved to London and his career moved into national charity, ultimately as Head of Fundraising Strategy at NSPCC.

Rob has also worked extensively with the Institute of Fundraising to improve understanding of fundraising throughout the charity sector.

Following a year spent travelling the world, Diana and Rob have returned to Brighton and Rob now consults with charities and other ‘not-for-profit’ bodies to support their funding strategy.

“Abandofbrothers are doing something very powerful and very important; the positive effect on the young men’s lives and the lives of their families really inspires me to help make this remarkable organisation successful.”

Outside of work, Rob is a fitness enthusiast and continues to play piano and guitar as a hobby.
