On accepting the position, Lydia said, ‘I’m excited to be joining a movement that doesn’t just speak about justice but acts to see it become a reality. I am looking forward to becoming part of a team committed to partnership and to raising awareness about the issues that cut to the heart of Christianity and of humanity.’

The Chairman of the Bishop’s Appeal, the Rt Revd Michael Burrows, Bishop of Cashel & Ossory, said, ‘I welcome Lydia warmly to this role. She possesses an excellent blend of gifts and experience which makes this an exciting and hopeful appointment.’
