Alex joined Power to Change in October 2017 and is our Programme Delivery Manager focusing on new market opportunities for community businesses.

She has experience spanning grant fund management, partnership development, community energy and research. Past work has included developing guidance on community engagement for community energy groups, working with the NHS and local authorities to deliver an innovative health and housing referral service, and managing a national volunteering scheme for young people to improve energy use in homes, schools and communities.

“It is a privilege to work with and learn from community businesses to demonstrate the vast potential communities have to create better places. No one understands local needs and how to address them better than the people who live there, and I am very grateful to play a small part in supporting communities to pioneer economic, social and environmental change from the bottom up.”
