Lucy– Head of Development
I am responsible for raising funds for the charity mainly from Trusts and Foundations, Charity of the Year partnerships with companies and individual supporters. I also support the delivery of our school programmes when required. In my role as Head of Development, I love being able to engage with a variety of people and to be able to share the wonderful work of Making The Leap to raise vital funds. I joined Making The Leap in October 2005 and in that time I have undertaken various different yet incredibly rewarding roles – all of them focused on directly working with our beneficiaries until I moved into this role in 2014.
There have been so many amazing success stories over the years! I have so much admiration for young people’s courage, determination, and enthusiasm. As so many of the young people who attend our programmes keep in touch with us afterwards, we can hear all about their wonderful personal and professional successes. It is amazing to be part of this special organisation helping young people to fulfil their own unique potential.
