Sarah Parkhouse
Trusts Associate

Sarah has over 15 years’ experience developing, delivering and managing services within the voluntary, social enterprise, public and private sector. She has run two charities, working very closely with trustees, so has a direct understanding of the complexities associated with running an effective charity and the challenges involved in ensuring financial sustainability.

Sarah has been successful in securing funds to continue or expand existing services – often exceeding targets and delighting her clients or employers.  She has experience of fundraising through grants, trusts, and foundations, as well as corporate sponsorship and community events. Her experience spans both sides of the government contract landscape having acted as both a commissioner and commissioned service.

Sarah is passionate about helping organisations become sustainable so they can deliver high quality services and reach organisational goals with focus and integrity.
