Deputy CEO and Director of Strategy

What I do

I explore ways to develop UKCF’s practice and delivery as well as building relationships with strategic partners through 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 on how to shift their funding to tackle the root causes of social problems.

Outside of work

In my spare time you can find me cooking, walking my lurcher and buying 'one more' houseplant. Ask me about how artificial intelligence is going to transform philanthropy for good and bad!
