Rosey Shelbourne


I’ve been part of the CPA team since the very beginning.

As a former primary school teacher, I am passionate about education and safeguarding children. My main focus recently has been working with children and with writing and delivering ‘Safeguarding training’ in an African context.

Over the years, I have been involved in a variety of projects in Ethiopia, Uganda, Mozambique and Malawi and have particularly enjoyed meeting and working with lots of lovely and interesting people.

I am married to Chris and have two grown up children. In my spare time I love travel, visiting the theatre, walking in the hills, swimming, Pilates and music; in fact anything creative or with a bit of adventure!
