Kim has delivered successful grant led projects and programmes both in the public and the third sector, and has extensive experience of working with diverse stakeholder groups across the UK to both secure funding and deliver and embed cutting edge programmes.
Her primary interest is community engagement and regeneration. In particular, she has worked with local partnerships to develop solutions tackling long term worklessness. In her early career, Kim spent time working for the Princes Trust as the Northern Director of the Volunteers Programme in some of the most economically deprived areas of the North of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. She has worked at a national level on a number of training schemes including the development of Youth Training Programmes. She moved to work in east London in 2007 where she worked with the Olympic Host Boroughs leading their devolved employment, skills and schools programmes.
Kim joined the Mayor’s Fund in 2012 just when the charity began supporting school breakfast clubs. This experience has sparked a new passion to ensure no child goes hungry or is left isolated at holiday time.
