Kat has enjoyed a diverse career within the voluntary sector. This has included leading homelessness provision for ex-offenders and young people, heading up large animal welfare hospitals and the volunteer department for a children’s charity. Her current post involves designing and building mental health and well-being programmes for farming communities across the UK.
This diverse experience has given Kat a wide range of skills: strategy and business planning development and implementation, meeting regulatory requirements, governance, securing grant and trust funding, people management and transformation leadership. Kat has a particular interest in organisational change and inclusion within the voluntary sector.
