Sean is our Head Of Programmes & Impact. After twelve years of working at the Big Lottery Fund in a number of managerial roles, Sean is now excited to lead on the development of LandAid’s grant-making and professional advice service. He’s keen to work collaboratively to explore innovative ways of demonstrating LandAid’s considerable impact.
At the Big Lottery Fund, Sean headed up the delivery of the Local Sustainability Fund and was drawn to the difference that meaningful professional advice can make within the voluntary sector. For a while, he headed up the Fund’s homelessness policy work and was struck by the opportunities to solve a social travesty such as this.
As a trustee at the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Community Foundation, he helped to oversee a transition towards a new form of grant-making. He then developed his volunteering and trustee experience when helping to design and deliver the grant programme of the Children’s Health Fund.
