Part of my role at the Heritage Lottery Fund is to ensure that we fund lots of great projects that engage young people with heritage. This includes managing our Young Roots grants programme, where I have an overview of projects across the UK. I have worked as a Policy Adviser, in the Participation and Learning team here at HLF since 2008. Before that, I was Community Development Officer at Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery, and prior to that I worked in audience development and diversity for Arts Council England.
