Tristan Paton


I have over 10 years' experience working in fundraising roles across the charity sector, and currently have the privilege of leading the Trust & Statutory team at Breaking Barriers - where we support people of refugee background to access meaningful employment.

Prior to Breaking Barriers, I've worked in roles across homelessness, sport for development and the arts. If I was to articulate what I enjoy most about my job, it would include working with passionate and inspiring people every day, the continuous learning that is demanded of us as trust fundraisers, and connecting people with opportunities to affect the causes that matter to them.

As a father to two small children, my time away from work is spent sharing in their passion for dancing, counting and riding the London underground.
