Why not gather a group of friends together and book a table for this special event? Much-loved television and radio personality Diane Louise Jordan is often referred to as a “presenter across boundaries” in recognition of her natural ability to relate to many from all walks of life; be it interviewing HRH The Prince of Wales or spending time with South American street children. Diane came to prominence in 1990 when she joined the legendary Blue Peter. Since then she’s been a familiar face and voice on our screens and airways, most notably Songs of Praise and Radio 2’s The Sunday Hour. Perhaps less known is Diane’s dedication to supporting families through her advocacy and mentoring work. In 2008 she helped former Death Row convict Kenny Richey adjust to life and reacquaint with family after spending years in solitary confinement. Closer to home in 1989, just months before joining Blue Peter, Diane became mum to her two year old niece, when her sister suddenly died. In many ways this experience was the catalyst for Diane’s motivation to see all children raised in loving, secure family homes.
Diane is currently an Ambassador for Family Futures, the pioneering adoption and therapeutic agency. She’s also been a trustee for BBC Children in Need and The Prince’s Trust. Concerned about the levels of family breakdown and its adverse effect on a child’s ability to thrive, Diane will be speaking about how the church community can trail blaze support for families and young people. Happily married to violinist Giles Broadbent, adoptive mum to Justine and granny to three, Diane’s overriding passion is to see families thrive.
