I lead a team providing strategic participation and learning expertise to decision-takers in HLF. Working externally across the UK, the team demonstrates the benefits of Lottery funding for people of all backgrounds and promotes better access to grants for under-represented groups, including young people, people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds and disabled people. I am HLF’s lead on heritage skills and vocational learning and direct the £40m Skills for the Future grants programme currently delivering work-based training placements across the UK and encouraging a more diverse heritage workforce. I am director of the Young Roots grants programme which encourages youth-led heritage projects. Before joining HLF, I was first an education officer and then a University lecturer, in both cases with a focus on 20th century genocide.
