Our Founder



Ranjit Ghoshal, Founder and CEO of One Million Steps: Building a Healthier World for Giving

Ranjit finished university and took on the role of News Editor and Sub Editor for the Big Issue Cymru.

His passion for work within the homeless sector led to him joining Cardiff Council on a traineeship. He spent 10 years in front-line and strategic levels in social housing and homelessness and managed a homeless hostel, sat on task and finish groups, Welsh Government Committees and advised housing-related organisations across Wales.

He has a strong passion for projects in community engagement and capacity building, prison and army leavers, substance misuse and mental health.

With a combined 20+ years as a Board Member/Trustee on three large charities: Chartered Institute of Housing, Shelter, and TPAS, he strongly believes social good businesses can be a powerful force for change.

For 18 months he was the volunteer Deputy Manager for Oxfam at the showcase Cardiff Boutique and also volunteered in Belarus; working to refurbish an Orphanage for disabled 3-6 year olds.

Always curious about what makes people tick, Ranjit is passionate about how we can make the world a better place, and importantly how we can give people and organisations the tools to do it themselves.
