Her new role, which will see her have responsibility for all LandAid’s outward-facing work – fundraising, engagement, and impact – doesn’t mean that she will be relinquishing her DCEO role (which she has gone from strength to strength in since 2019) any time soon, in fact it’s anything but – and Alice is ready to grab her dual role with both hands and dive straight in.
Before her day-to-day gets even busier, we sat down over a cuppa with Alice, to chat about her new role, what this means for LandAid, her plans and hopes for the year ahead (and beyond), as well as an opportunity to reflect on her time at LandAid to date.
Firstly, congratulations on your promotion to DCEO and Director of Operations. How are you feeling about this?
I’m super excited to be in my new role and to be a part of LandAid at this hugely exciting time. We have just had our best fundraising year ever! This means that we can increase our impact, in turn, providing so many more young people with a safe place to stay.
I am a fundraiser by trade and in my new capacity, this allows me to oversee the full operations of LandAid – not only raising the funds but playing a part in seeing where the funds go, creating real impact for vulnerable young people, and ensuring that the money we raise is used in the most effective way.
