Helen joined the team in November 2020. She started out her career in local community development, supporting collaborations with local partners to deliver adult learning programmes. She since spent over fifteen years in the homelessness sector, including at Homeless Link, the membership charity for the homelessness sector, where she led their policy, research and communications teams. Helen has continued her passion for local place based community action, most recently as Chair of the New Cross Gate Trust.
Ask Helen about: place based giving and anything to do with our London’s Giving programme; local funder networks and our place based collaborations – how we can strengthen our local cross-sector links in London’s places and spaces to benefit civil society.
Helen’s hidden London gem is: soaking up the London skyline from the top of Blythe Hill Fields – a little-known park with some of the best views of the city.
