Di joined Centrepoint in May 2018 as their Director of Fundraising and is responsible for maximising income to end youth homelessness. This is Di’s first role in social justice, having previously focused on health at Arthritis Care (now part of Versus Arthritis) and the MS Society. Unusually, Di started her career in a software house - developing solutions for blue chip companies before moving into pure event management at Queen Mary, University of London. Thanks to her diverse work experience, Di comes with skills in technology, project management and data control as well as events, fundraising, change management and leadership. Di is a member of the Institute of Fundraising and sits on their Learning and Development committee. Outside of work, Di destresses on the badminton court or cycling (in London) and climbing up mountains (out of London!).
