Lauren Rosegreen is the Sales and Business Development Manager for Invisible (Manchester), a not-for-profit that trains those affected by homelessness to become walking tour guides, and the youngest ever Trustee of the Greater Manchester Mayor’s charity.
After moving from a small village to study for a degree in Law at the University of Manchester, Lauren was overwhelmed by the amount of homelessness in the city centre. In 2019, she was selected to attend the Global Pathfinders Summit; a conference for emerging global leaders creating sustainable social change. Lauren developed a network with young policy changers, reaffirming her ambition to tackle social issues in the UK, leading to her role at Invisible (Manchester).
Recently awarded the Manchester Young Talent ‘Community Hero’ 2021 Award from JCI Manchester, Lauren has been recognised for driving genuine change in Greater Manchester’s homelessness community. The judges said, “the range and innovation of this person is clearly remarkable and will have a long term legacy.”
As a young woman from an ethnic minority background with a variety of corporate and charitable experience, Lauren champions alternative perspectives to drive positive change. She advocates for the recognition of intersectionality when tackling social issues, and firmly believes that the only way to drive genuine change is to give everyone a seat at the table.
