I’ve been lucky to work with some amazing organisations over the last few years – learn more about them here!
Semble brings community groups together with businesses and volunteers to make change happen. I’ve been so proud to work with them in the capacity of Global Communications Manager for the last three years for their Outdoor Classroom Day campaign. Find out more about Semble!
CanDo pioneers people-to-people aid to invest in and resource local humanitarians to save more lives in war-devastated areas. I worked with CanDo for five months as Creative Comms Lead to fill a resource gap, managing all of their external comms including their wonderful blog. Find out more about CanDo!
Friends of the Elderly
Friends of the Elderly runs a portfolio of care homes across the country. Through their charitable work, they provide support for older people affected by loneliness and grants for those living on a low income. I headed up the Communications Team at Friends of the Elderly from 2014-2016. I have since continued to work with them on projects including the production of their annual review.

Outdoor Play and Learning (OPAL) CIC
The OPAL Primary Programme is what OPAL is all about. It is a mentor supported school improvement programme. It addresses all of the areas schools must plan for if they want to sustainably improve the quality of play. I’ve been supporting OPAL with their comms since 2018, focussing on social media and PR.

Envision develops young people’s employability by empowering them to tackle real-life social problems. I worked with Envision in 2017 on their Comunity Apprentice programme, sharing my top tips for campaigning at their fresher-style fair. Find out more about Envision!
I’ve worked with Claire for several years now on our Outdoor Classroom Day Project (where she leads the comms strategy), and she has just been an absolute joy to work with. She really understands the fine balance to be struck in creating impactful messaging to the right audience, whilst meeting the needs of a variety of different stakeholders. Claire is both thoroughly professional, and a high-energy generator of creative ideas. It’s rare to find someone who is able to balance that with a keen eye for detail, and brilliant team-working skills. But with Claire it’s genuinely the full package.
