Head of Greater Manchester Mayor's Charity
Vanessa first joined GMMC in 2020 and now heads up the growing team. She is an alumni of the Clore Social Leadership programme and specialises in leading through moments of growth and change.
Vanessa's work has always been driven by her deep-rooted commitment to tackling inequality.
She has twenty year's experience across numerous sectors including the arts, community development, social housing, education, fundraising and charity leadership roles. She does not believe in silo working and considers multi-sector-collaboration vital.
As a proud Bolton lass and Manchester University graduate, Vanessa feels privileged to be working in Greater Manchester alongside so many incredible people and organisations.
She fervently believes that having a safe, secure place to call home is a right that simply should not be out of reach for so many.
