What I do

I explore new ways to grow UKCF’s income as well as building relationships with strategic partners and persuading them of the value of working with Community Foundations. I also oversee our portfolio of national programmes of grant-making, ensuring we are delivering high-quality support to local communities.

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.
