Director of Programmes and Communications
Sarah first began her career in the public service with Derbyshire Probation service after gaining her MA in Social Policy and Criminology. Her career has taken a varied path from that of a drugs rehabilitation practitioner, designing out crime with Derbyshire Police Force through to the Chief Executive of a Business Improvement District in the Midlands, but the roles have always focused on helping people, communities and businesses.
Most recently Sarah worked as the Programme Director for a London regeneration consultancy firm.
Sarah joined the Future for London Foundation team in May 2020 as Programme and Communication Director, leading primarily on the exciting Westfield Stratford City 5-year programme. She is thrilled about joining the team and the potential to make a true difference to lives in East London.
Sarah’s professional expertise are place management, particularly with a strong social policy context, stakeholder engagement and leadership development.
Sarah loves working in East London because there is never a dull moment. The sheer mix of culture and diversity makes it such a welcoming and fun inclusive place to live, work, play and visit.
In her spare time, when not entertaining her four-year-old daughter or two giant Old English Sheepdogs, she loves to read and swim, though not at the same time.
