Dr Charmaine Angella Brown is based in London, UK but was born in Kingston, Jamaica.

My teaching journey started in 1988 with the Inner London Education Authority (ILEA) and continued as Education Manager at the Peckham Literacy Centre ‘The Bookplace’.  

Since 2002, I have been teaching in HE. I am currently a senior university lecturer in initial teacher education at the University of Greenwich and participates in a range of equality initiatives which is applied in my professional role as Judicial Office holder for the Ministry of Justice sitting on  the First Tier of Social Security and Child Services Tribunals in England, Scotland and Wales and Employment Tribunal in England and Wales.   

Dr Brown is passionate about empowering community members and getting their voice heard.  I am knowledgeable about the communities I support having held a variety of   paid and voluntary roles in the Voluntary Sector including management committee posts, mentoring disadvantaged young people,  advocating in case of miscarriages of justice against the Police and teaching literacy, numeracy and ESOL. 

My current interests includes reading, attending cultural events, documenting oral histories from Jamaican elders, genealogy and creating memories for the younger generations in my family.
