Daniel Phelan, owner and editor-in-chief of Civil Society Media, passed away on Wednesday following a long battle with cancer. He was 58.
Daniel launched CSM, then Plaza Publishing, in 1990 and grew it into the only media, events and training company dedicated to serving the UK’s voluntary sector. You can see Civil Society Media’s announcement here and Tania Mason’s obituary here.
Daniel was a good friend to Alliance from the very beginning, always generous with his advice and support. For the last few years he was a trustee of Alliance Publishing Trust, where his wisdom and experience will be sorely missed.
He will be a great loss to his family, friends and colleagues and to civil society in the UK. We would like to extend our sincerest condolences to his family.
