Ewan Day-Collins

Head of Programme and Business Development


Ewan works on Depaul’s programme in Ukraine. He’s worked for Depaul three times by the age of 25, which is probably some kind of record. He was a student intern at the start of the Institute of Global Homelessness and then joined the team full-time straight after graduating. He re-joined in March 2022 at the outset of war in Ukraine.

In between, he worked as Monitoring & Evaluation lead for a global education charity, and in business development at St Mungo’s. Ewan started in the homelessness sector as a volunteer outreach worker and he still does occasional shifts with Thames Reach in London.

He grew up in the city, leaving briefly to study at Cambridge University, where he got a Double First in History. Outside of work, he is Chair of Trustees of the Catholic youth charity Million Minutes and plays jazz with a band in Brixton.
