Radhika joined the Trust board in February 2024. She works as Portfolio Manager for Impact on Urban Health, where she leads partnerships working on ambitious and innovative approaches towards health equity. Her work has a particular focus on racial justice and she works closely with Black and other minoritised community organisations.

Previously, she led the Communities Team at The Young Foundation, supporting community-led change in neighbourhoods across the UK. She also led Reimagining Rent, a social enterprise accelerator designed to improve affordability, quality and security in the private rented sector. For many years she was a trustee at Community Links in Newham. She has served as a board member of Global Fund for Women, and as chair of Global Fund for Women UK. She is chair of Asha Trust (Sri Lanka) and serves on the boards of the Magpie Project (supporting women and children in temporary accommodation) and Kineara (supporting people at risk of eviction and homelessness).

Radhika said: ‘I am delighted to join the BCT board, and have long admired their long term approach to systemic social change. Having spent many years leading organisations seeking funding, it is a privilege to play a role in supporting the crucial work of those leading the struggle for greater equity and social justice in this country’.
