Tim Bidey

Head of voluntary, community and social enterprise

Tim Bidey leads our work with the voluntary and community sector at Traverse.

I have spent over ten years working within or alongside the voluntary and community sector in the UK and abroad. I bring experience of a range of roles from project delivery and fundraising, through to monitoring and evaluation, and most recently as a charity trustee.

I draw on these experiences to inform my work alongside organisations as an external researcher, independent evaluator and learning partner. I recognise that research and evaluation in charities almost always sits within a busy, broader landscape to which it must connect, and I take care to work with organisations in ways in non-burdensome ways that generate practical recommendations and add wider value.

I have a particular passion for helping charities explore what works, what does not and why to inform project design and ongoing practice. My interests focus on health, ageing and disability-focused interventions, as well as participatory methodologies such as peer research, but our specialisms at Traverse also include young people, community development and digital delivery. I also support Traverse’s national and international work in the field of Social Investment.

I consider it a privilege to follow these interests and support a sector that plays such a vital role in our society – and Traverse feels like the right place to do it. The principles that sit at the heart of the voluntary sector are the same ones we embrace at Traverse: a focus on lived experience, the fundamental importance of inclusion and accessibility, and the strengths of collaborative, flexible ways of working.
