Andrew Tuggey CBE DL

My background

I have been a trustee of the Community Foundation Wales since 2018 and became Chair of UK Community Foundations in October 2020. I also chair the High Sheriffs Association of England and Wales.

Previously Chief Executive of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association at Westminster, I have experience of engaging with all UK jurisdictions and a deep understanding of the spectrum of challenges faced by communities across the Commonwealth. A former Vice Lord-Lieutenant and High Sheriff of Gwent, I am also a trustee of National Crimebeat and was Chair of ScoutsCymru; as a former soldier, I also have active roles within several Veterans charities.

What I do

I hugely value being a trustee of CFW and sitting on the Grants sub-committee. My involvement as a trustee of CFW and the grassroots nature of being on the Grants committee greatly informs my work as Chair of UK Community Foundations, the UK-wide network of 47 accredited community foundations to which CFW belongs. I also chair the High Sheriffs Association of England & Wales which encourages and supports the mutually beneficial links between community foundations and High Sheriffs.

I maintain my connection with Commonwealth-related democracy and development matters and am honoured to have been Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Gwent 2016 – 2023.

Ask me about

Challenges and opportunities for young people and youth organisations in our communities, modern slavery, the empowerment of women and girls, equalities and inclusivity, the engagement of young people with parliamentary governance and democracy, inter-faith matters, the Commonwealth, and veterans.

Why I love Wales

The warmth, generosity and humour of people; the wonderful heritage, history and culture; the breath-taking and unspoilt countryside, coastline and topography – and the tremendous opportunities there are for the wellbeing of future generations in Wales.
