Liz Parsons

Head of Advocacy


Liz has worked with us since 2006. After completing a History Degree, Liz went on to do a PGCE with the intention of becoming a teacher. However, having previously worked for Life FertilityCare and having always had a passion for the prolife cause – in particular for the services and support that we provide – she instead decided to apply for the Education position in the North West. Since then, Liz has spoken to students across the region and is now in charge of training for Life Matters® speakers.

Mark Bhagwandin

Senior Education & Media Officer


Mark was a journalist and then Editor-in-Chief of the Guyana Broadcasting Corporation. He then came to the UK from Guyana in 2002, completing his Masters in International Journalism at City University. Mark joined Life in 2004 and has since spoken widely to students in the Thames Valley, across the UK and internationally.


Clare Plasom-Scott (Life Link Three)

Life Matters® Officer

Clare is a Fine Art and Philosophy graduate from Lancaster University. She has since spent time travelling in Asia, and working in schools and health clinics across the Southern province of Zambia. She is passionate about her work and is a lover of life. In her spare time she’s always keeping herself busy painting, playing music or exploring the beauty nature has to offer; she is most content visiting the Lake District and wandering the hills with her family.


Clara Campbell

Life Matters® Officer

Clara also assists in Life media and advocacy work. She completed her Law degree at the London School of Economics in 2014 and her Masters in Bioethics and Medical Law at St Mary’s University in 2015. Before graduating, Clara was Head of Advocacy for the UK Chapter of the World Youth Alliance, an organisation which works to promote the dignity of the human person at an international and grassroots level. She has a keen interest in theology, bioethics and art and is dedicated to defending the rights of the unborn child.

James Tranter (Life Link One)

Life Matters® Officer

Working for the Greater Birmingham hub, James is a History graduate of the University of Exeter. He then worked for Barclays as a complaints handler before becoming involved in the prolife movement.
