What am I responsible for?

I am responsible for the development, implementation and delivery of the Trust’s various funding programmes.


What brings me here?

After working in Insurance for 11 years and following a career break of 8.5 years to raise a family, I was looking for a change in direction and role where I could make a positive difference to people’s lives. I joined the Trust in Jan 2014 as a part time Grants Assistant and haven’t looked back.


What am I working on?

As an Organisation we are currently reviewing our funding and I am heavily involved in this and the development and implementation of new funding streams.


What do I enjoy spending time doing for my own wellbeing?

I have a dog and find one of the biggest stress reliefs is walking with him in the beautiful countryside that Gloucestershire has to offer. (She/her)
