My role is not just about fundraising but also has a big focus on educating young people about homelessness, Turning Tides and the difficulties our clients might face. I spend a lot of time in schools delivering informative classes, that break down stereotypes and give insight into the reasons and causes of homelessness and how we can work together to help end local homelessness.

My role is to work with our corporate supporters to build long-lasting and mutually beneficial relationships. Whilst I am the main point of contact for all corporate supporters, my role also involves building new relationships and spreading awareness of homelessness. I truly feel that a corporate partnership should be about working together, so maintaining that regular and open communication with corporate supporters is important in my role.
