Jane Thompson

Lead Funding Administrator

Team member Jane smiling at a team member during a conversation.


What am I responsible for?

I provide guidance on administering the different funding programmes that the Trust offers and take a lead supporting the development and evolution of our funding programmes and processes.


What brings me here?

I’ve worked at Barnwood Trust for 5 years now, having previously worked in a variety of organisations including a veterinary practice, a product design consultancy and the National Trust. The common thread between all my roles is working with people.


What am I working on?

I’m currently working with the rest of the Funding team devising processes for our new funding streams. In particular, I’m looking at the use of our grant management software, Flexi-Grant, and how this can help make applying for and administering these schemes easier.


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

I have a two-year-old Dalmatian so spend a lot time out on walks or playing in the park. I also enjoy a spot of DIY and gardening which is mainly relaxing but not always! (She/her)
