Former National Children’s Bureau Chief Executive Sir Paul Ennals CBE has joined Sense, the deafblind charity, for three months to support strategic development planning for the charity.
During his three-month stint as Director of Strategy, Paul will oversee public policy, communications, membership, information & legal services, and quality assurance, as well as bringing his broad experience of strategic development in the third sector to the table.
Paul knows Sense well, having played a key role with the charity in its early days when it was just setting out to be the key provider of services and champion for deafblind people that it is today in theUKand internationally. Once a teacher of blind and deafblind children, and trained as a mobility officer, he has a deep understanding of sensory impairment.

“I’m delighted to be back at Sense supporting the needs of deafblind people,” said Paul.
