We were assisted in the recruitment process by Green Park as well as Penny Wilson, Chief Executive of Getting on Board.

Commenting on her appointment to the UKCF Board, Anushka Nagpal said,

“I am passionate about supporting grassroots projects which can create significant impact at the heart of our communities. Joining the Board as a Trustee gives me a valuable opportunity to leverage my skills & experience, especially in digital led transformation, to serve the sector at a time of pandemic when there is a pressing need for local communities to show great agility in adapting to fast changing needs and rethinking traditional delivery models using innovative methods.”
