The Connect Fund has reached the magic number of three to complete the team. We are welcoming Liz Hayes to the team. Liz has joined the team as the new Assistant Manager. She will be working alongside Jessica and Alex to develop and deliver the fund, engaging a range of partners and stakeholders across England to strengthen and diversify support for organisations seeking social investment.
Liz has a background in grants management having delivered programmes for both local government, working for the London Borough of Hackney, and charitable foundations, including the Waterloo Foundation and the Community Foundation in Wales. She has experience working closely with the voluntary, community and social enterprise organisation, including infrastructure agencies and community anchor groups, supporting them to thrive and enabling them to become sustainable community resources. Liz says: “I feel lucky to be able to work for the Barrow Cadbury Trust on such an important programme, which will provide exciting opportunities for both learning and growth in the voluntary sector and social investment market”.
Join us in giving a big welcome to Liz!
