Nigel Ellway

RoleOur Founder and Executive DirectorBiographyNigel Ellway, former journalist and Whitehall media advisor, describes himself as a ‘partially sighted global adventurer who’s walked through a minefield with a one legged man’. Nigel has dedicated over a decade of his life to campaigning for mine-action and has been inspired by some of the most remarkable people around the world who have to cope on a daily basis with the futility of conflict and terrorism at unimaginable personal cost. Nigel has taken the REVIVE message from the ruins of Mosul to the United Nations in Geneva, from the minefields of Cambodia to the European Union in Luxembourg, and to every politician and diplomat he has met along the way.
