SGI-UK General Director – Robert Harrap

Robert Harrap has been the General Director of SGI-UK since December 2013. Before that he spent 16 years as a barrister in chambers in London’s Inner Temple. Prior to his appointment as General Director Robert served as both the Men’s Leader and Head of the SGI-UK Study department. He has practised Nichiren Buddhism for 30 years and lives in the village of Taplow with his wife, Claire.



Gabrielle started practising Buddhism within SGI-UK when she was 14, having been born to an already-practising Buddhist mother. Throughout her teens, and now into her twenties, Gabrielle has discovered her passion for interfaith activism and building bridges of peace between people.
