Personal Profile

profile

My vision is to see people embracing social and environmental change, making positive decisions to develop skills, knowledge and recognise how resourceful they are, whilst respecting others and the diversity of the world around them.

I am an experienced leader, manager, problem-solver and lifelong-learner, who is deeply motivated to enable social change through my work. Many years in this work has given me deep insights into how we can effect this change by supporting individuals and groups, working with colleagues, partners and the wider ecosystem. I regularly reflect on my assumptions, knowledge and practice.

My vision is to see people embracing change and making positive decisions to develop, whilst respecting others and the diversity of the world around them.

Many years’ experience working with people who want to make a difference in the world has allowed me to develop deep skills of facilitation, coaching, enterprise & organisational development, management practice, income generation and fundraising. I’m a working mum from London and Brighton.

> Currently working with UnLtd, the Foundation for Social Entrepreneurs, I’m encouraging a culture of social entrepreneurship in communities of place by working with inspirational individuals, identifying their cheerleaders, connecting with and developing the support that surrounds them.

>I most enjoy working with communities, local food systems, urban farms, community gardens, and providing a language bridge between funders, businesses and ordinary folk like me.

People who work with me say they value my open, curious, friendly and solution-orientated approach, which cultivates confidence and improves essential skills.

My experience of social enterprise, fundraising (Lottery, trusts & foundations, statutory, corporate), charity management, organisational development, facilitation, mentoring and coaching, puts me in a great position to support individuals and organisations at all levels - particularly those who are likely to be managing incredible innovation combined with rapid and constant change.

Over the last 20 years I have most enjoyed my work with the local food, urban farming and environmental sectors – involvement which I draw on to support individuals and organisations from a variety of backgrounds. My vision is to see people embracing change and making positive decisions to develop, whilst respecting the diversity of the world around them.

Fieldworker

Federation of City Farms & Community Gardens

Rebecca was recruited into our first group of Fieldworkers in 2000 to provide local advice and specialist knowledge when required; Rebecca also helped refine the programme over the years. Fieldworkers are respected as peers by those they advise, and in addition experts by virtue of experience, knowledge and skills. The pre-requisites included generic community development skills and experience, and ability to relate to the variety of volunteers, staff, committees, funders and local authority staff and elected members she might encounter; she exceeded in all these areas(!) and has since delivered a variety of advice. This has ranged from practical livestock and volunteer safety, to fundraising and business development assessment and planning. I could not recommend her more highly

Community Spaces Fund Facilitator

Groundwork UK

Rebecca worked as a Community Group Facilitator on the Community Spaces programme which was funded by Big Lottery Fund for which i was the Programme Manager. Rebecca carried out this role professionally and independently to offer a range of support services to help groups apply for the funding and deliver successful projects. Rebecca proved herself as an experienced facilitator and was often called upon to support groups who were struggling the most. This was often in the area of relationship breakdown either within the group or with partner agencies. Rebecca was able to broker relationships to reach a conclusion acceptable to all parties

Consultant

Business Community Partnership

I worked extensively with Rebecca during my time at BCP, where I managed a support network for charities, voluntary sector orgs and social enterprises. Rebecca's expertise was most successfully positioned in supporting and advice for social enterprises. Working with Rebecca was a fantastic experience both interms of her personable, flexible and warm nature and her professionalism, extensive knowledge and commitment. The fact that much of the work we did together was offered pro-bono to the chairites and social enterprises conveys very clearly that Rebecca works highly successfully using both her head and her heart. I would not hesitate to work with her again and again
