Davina Irwin-Clark – Trustee

Davina was a clergy wife for 40 years, in varied parishes from Huddersfield to Brighton. In that role she met and cared for people in every sort of need and crisis, those with faith, and those with none.

Some were a brief encounter, some moved in to live in the Vicarage. Davina is a past chair of Women in Mission, a trainer and public speaker, whose great joy is to encourage. She was the High Sheriff of West Sussex in 2020, and as such had extensive access behind the scenes in police and social work, prisons, safe houses, rehab places and with countless charities. This was eye-opening, tough, inspiring and unforgettable, just as Streetlight’s work is, so Davina feels privileged to be involved as a trustee.
