Meet Natalie Jordan, one of our Philanthropy Managers. Natalie oversees grant applications in the Vital Signs areas of Health & Wellbeing, Diversity and Crime & Safety. Natalie, along with her fellow Philanthropy Managers, assists in facilitating and delivering Applications and Monitoring Workshops throughout the year, helping groups to understand how the grant process works, and what is needed to provide great monitoring. Natalie also works with SportsAid Eastern and Sport MK to help award multiple sports bursaries throughout the year.
Some of the project highlights of Natalie's Year include:
