After 10 years working in the charity sector in London, in 2017 I relocated to Yorkshire and began working with charities on a freelance and interim basis.
In recent months I have worked on strategic and operational consultancy projects and developed and delivered training for organisations such as the Stroke Association and NCVO.
Prior to being self-employed, I was Head of Development at Toynbee Hall, responsible for all voluntary income including a capital appeal. I have previously worked for NCVO, Friends of the Earth and RNIB and provided consultancy support to arts, health and social organisations – some via the Small Charities Coalition. I have also been a charity trustee.
My experience lies in strategy development and developing new income streams, from challenge and special events through to corporate and major donor fundraising. Having managed restricted, unrestricted and capital appeals, I’m well placed to support organisations looking to diversify or further develop their income streams. More broadly, I am able to support organisations with their governance, and strategic and business planning.
I hold an MSc (Distinction) in Voluntary Sector Management from Cass Business School, the IoF’s Certificate in Fundraising and the CIM’s Diploma in Communications, Advertising and Marketing.
