Clare Payne

Clare has worked in the community and voluntary sector for over 20 years.

Much of this has been in grant making, including developing and managing funding programmes to catalyse the social change ideas of entrepreneurs and delivering an economic justice programme for an independent charitable Trust. As a freelance consultant, she has gained valuable insight into different grant assessment and monitoring and evaluation processes and worked with funders on local and national funding initiatives. Clare has significant experience in providing capacity building support to voluntary sector organisations, including small charities, and has worked with many to ensure the lived experience of beneficiaries is captured and reflected in activities.
