The Hope Centre’s Patron, Sir Andrew McFarlane, joined the charity in 2010. He is a strong advocate and supporter of the work we do and we are very proud to have his support and are extremely grateful for his public support for our charity.
Sir Andrew McFarlane was promoted to the Court of Appeal in July 2011 in a meteoric career rise that began in the drama department of Durham University. He was called to the Bar by the Gray’s Inn in 1977 and took Silk in 1998. He was appointed a High Court Judge assigned to the Family Division in 2005 and was the Family Division Liaison Judge for the Midlands.
In April 2018, Her Majesty The Queen approved his appointment as the President of the Family Division from 28 July 2018, following the retirement of his predecessor Sir James Munby on 27 July 2018
