Biography

Peter Thomson is a founding member of the Social Entrepreneurs Network in Australia, and worked with Andrew Mawson in the UK in establishing the Community Action Network.

Ordained as an Anglican priest in Australia in 1959, Peter took on the creation and management of various community projects under the auspices of the Anglican Church within its parish framework. In 1969 Peter was invited to become Chaplain in Australia's most exciting educational experiment this century: Timbertop. Yearly, two hundred 15 year olds took part in this educational outdoor campus. Peter stayed involved in this for 15 years, as Chaplain from 1969 to 1972, at which time he took leave to go to Oxford University, and then returned to Timbertop as Principal from 1975 to 1983.

In 1983 Peter was appointed Principal of a University College in Adelaide, during which time he continued to pursue his interest in community regeneration. This led him to being selected to chair the Social Justice Advisory Committee established to give independent advice to the Department of the Premier and Cabinet of the South Australian Government on Social Justice Issues.

In 1996, in the run up to the General Election, Peter returned to England to support Tony Blair, a close personal friend of 25 years from his Oxford days. During his time in the UK., Peter worked closely with Andrew Mawson and played an active role in the development of CAN.

Since 2001, Peter has spent most of his time with his family in Melbourne, and works as Chaplain for the Brotherhood of St Laurence. He is a founding member of SEN, and has been a board member from the beginning.
