Deputy CEO and Director of Strategy

What I do

I explore ways to develop UKCF’s practice and income as well as building relationships with strategic partners and sharing the value of working with community foundations. I also oversee our portfolio of national programmes of grant making as well as our membership and learning function. 

About me

My career has spanned policy and delivery roles across the civil service, think tanks, local government and a frontline charity.  Most recently I’ve been advising independent trusts and foundations how to shift their funding to tackle the root causes of social problems.

Outside of work

In my spare time you’ll find me playing sport, gardening and chasing after my two young children.
