Derek obtained his formal training in copy editing and proofreading through the professional body involved in that field, namely the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP). The society’s website gives further background information on its activities, including its work in maintaining industry standards.


Derek and his wife broke off from their UK careers for three years (2002–5) to get involved in the HIV and AIDS crisis in Africa. Specifically, they spent their time working at an HIV treatment and training centre near Kampala, Uganda, run at that time by the UK charity Mildmay International. The centre now runs independently of its UK parent – see Mildmay Uganda’s own website.


Since returning to the UK and taking up his career again, Derek has remained involved with two charities concerned with Africa’s health crisis: Kisakye Children’s Trust for HIV-affected mothers and children, and APCA UK, which is involved with palliative care on a wider basis.
