I am very pleased to be part of the team at the Race Equality Foundation. I’ve joined the charity at an exciting time and look forward to using my extensive communications and engagement experience here. I’ve worked within the charity, not-for-profit and private sectors having worked for charities, social enterprises and digital agencies for many years. I’m happy to be leading and developing communcations within the Foundation to help deliver change in the Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities’ experiences of public services and their outcomes.
I previously worked for nearly a decade at Marie Curie, one of the UK’s largest cancer charities, leading on government relations, influencing, engagement and campaign management, including the charity’s ‘Choice at End of Life’ campaign. My career to date has been based on making an impact and tangible difference to people’s lives. Much of my work has been based on tackling health inequality, and I’ve contributed to major consultations such as the SEND Review, Kerslake Commission and NHS reform. Before joining the Foundation, I led on communications for Kids, a national charity that provides a wide range of advice, support and information services to disabled children, young people and their families across England; and Pathway, the UK’s leading homeless healthcare charity that works to improve the health and healthcare provision for people experiencing homelessness and others deeply marginalised in society. I have been responsible for developing and delivering internal and external communications strategy; managing media relations and campaigns; and developing digital media content.
Outside of my daily work role, I am a Trustee of the Tri-borough Music Trust, the charitable arm of the Tri-borough Music Hub (TBMH), that seeks to expand musical opportunities for the whole community across three West London boroughs, particularly those facing inequality and disadvantage. I am also a mentor with the Running Charity, an organisation that nurtures young people, who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness, to help them reach their full potential through running, personal development, and being part of a supportive community.
