The Rt Hon Baroness D’Souza CMG


Former Lord Speaker, Baroness D’Souza, joined us as President in January 2020.

She is a charity trustee, international human rights advocate and crossbench life peer in the House of Lords dedicated to supporting democracy, justice and international aid. She shares our goal to engage young people in these issues as skilled, informed and inspired citizens who can shape society.

Passionate about demystifying the workings of Westminster, she organises lectures and seminars for children to help them understand parliament. Read her piece for the Young Citizens blog on engaging young people in the decentralisation of power from central government.
