About me

I've worked in the third sector for 10 years, holding a variety of fundraising roles. Recently my focus has been strategic development, future planning and Trust and Foundation Fundraising. I also have experience in Corporate Partnerships Management and Individual Giving. 
I've raised over £890,000 for my employer charity in the past 3 years and have successfully secured multi-year grant funding for both core services and projects. 

I have worked in Comms in the third sector through this period, focusing on social media marketing and direct donor engagement. 

What am I looking for

I am looking for freelance opportunities. Helping small charities to generate income through Trust and Grant applications to deliver their front-line services.
