Director of Programmes

As Director of Programmes, Debbie has overall responsibility for delivery of the three funding programmes and also leads on the Trust’s strategic relationships in Birmingham. She has responsibility for some of our special initiatives, for example chairing the Board of The Foundry social justice centre in Vauxhall, London, funded through social investment from the Trust and others. Prior to joining the trust, Debbie worked for the Big Lottery Fund, ran a charity and worked in the NHS. She is trustee and advisor to several charities.

Debbie says: “My background in activism, health and equalities means that working for the Trust provides the perfect opportunity to put my values into action with a social justice funder”.
