Kath Vale, Head of Fundraising
Kath is an experienced marketing professional who spent ten years building a successful marketing career with PricewaterhouseCoopers. After a career break to bring up young children, she moved into the field of fundraising, using her skills to benefit others by raising funds to support charitable activities.
She has now been working in the voluntary sector for three years, during which time she has developed particular expertise in developing and writing funding applications for trusts, foundations and statutory funders. She recently worked for a charity supporting unpaid family carers, many of whom were looking after somebody living with dementia.
Kath has also managed and monitored large projects, recently leading the successful implementation of a new support service for unpaid carers across a partnership of six Essex-based charities.
In her spare time, Kath enjoys sailing on the River Blackwater in her home town of Maldon and setting off on weekend adventures with her husband and two children in their campervan.
