Head of Funding and Social Investment
What am I responsible for?
I take overall responsibility for the work of Barnwood Trust’s Funding Team. I work with people across the Trust and externally to make sure our funding and social investment programmes are well-run and have the greatest possible impact for people in Gloucestershire.
What brings me here?
My background is in inclusive project-based funding for national organisations, in particular in arts, voluntary and wider community contexts. Barnwood Trust’s inclusive, co-created approach to funding is what attracted me to the organisation, and I’m delighted to help drive forward this approach through my work.
What do I enjoy spending time doing for my own wellbeing?
I love all things arty, especially a good piece of theatre. I enjoy putting the world to rights on a good, long hike with friends. I also love taking the time to cook a big, hearty meal; I find it a very mindful activity, and getting to eat it at the end is an added bonus!
