Phil Pyatt became Blood Pressure UK’s Chief Executive in August 2021. He was previously Chief Executive of TimeBank, a national volunteering charity. Before joining TimeBank, Phil was CEO of Action for Stammering Children, a UK charity helping to support children and young people who stammer. Phil was also Director of Inspiring the Future at the Education and Employers Taskforce, helping to grow the online programme to engage over 10,000 teachers and more than 30,000 volunteers, and was also Director of Engagement at Localgiving.com, helping small local charities raise over £4 million in online donations. He has worked both in interactive television and at the BBC and moved to the voluntary sector to work on youth projects.
