About Me

Hi, I’m Tony Stower. I’m an experienced policy and public affairs professional, living near London, United Kingdom.

I work in child protection, leading the public affairs work at the NSPCC to make sure that the voice of abused and neglected children is heard in Parliament and government.

I regularly speak in the media on issues such as child abuse & neglect and online grooming. This site is mostly an opportunity to talk about the issues that interest me and host some of the media work I do.

In the past, I’ve worked in the civil service leading and developing policy on criminal evidence & procedure, counter-terrorism, and border control. I’ve also worked in the diplomatic service, representing the UK overseas and for the independent regulator of MPs’ pay & expenses.
