Originally from Essex (or, as she likes to say, the Suffolk border), Lauren moved to London when she started at The London Community Foundation. After gaining a first class Masters degree in Human Rights and spending time with NGOs in India, South Africa and America she decided it was time to help those closer to home.
Lauren is a Programme Manager which means that she manages many of LCF's grant programmes. She liaises with donors, manages the grant making process and gets to work with many fantastic community groups and charities all across London.

We love London
Lauren loves Brixton Village and Market Row and is a bit of an expert on the area now. Highlights include the okonomiyaki (amazing Japanese pancakes - try one!), the indoor plant shop and the best pancake place you'll ever experience.
