Philippa’s unique combination of journalistic know-how and mentoring has been invaluable in raising the Centre’s profile and our capability. Her ability to combine support with challenge has had a real and demonstrable impact both on our growth and on shaping the public debate around justice.

Philippa Budgen picks up on a development and is on it like a car bonnet. When we started the legal aid access to justice campaign Philippa mastered her brief in a way in which many an experienced lawyer would be envious of: knowing how to pitch the debate and using her contacts to full effect.
This successful campaign would not have made the mainstream media without her help and guidance. I’m in no doubt that the press coverage played a significant part in achieving the eventual policy reversal which we sought.

Philippa and I worked together for many years at BBC Radio 4’s Womans Hour. A well-respected and committed journalist, she applies similar qualities as a media consultant. More recently we joined forces on a press campaign to protect the rights of children in the face of law changes on anti-social behaviour. Philippa’s story-spotting skills and contacts book, combined with her understanding of the justice world made her a huge asset to our successful campaign.

Philippa is an engaging and good humoured trainer who quickly understood a complex issue and was able to offer sound advice about managing media with an emotive and contentious subject matter that is central to our charity.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Philippa on our Ideas for Justice interview series. Her Radio 4 experience proved invaluable for drawing out reflective insights from celebs and non-celebs alike. What an eclectic mix of interviews: from punishment in Roman times to modern day hate crimes and the power of art to rehabilitate. Each interview brought humanity and a personal touch to a difficult subject.
