Pascale Costello – Head of Grants Partnerships

Every day in my role I learn something new.

I never grow tired of speaking or writing about the projects led by our teams around the world; sharing the amazing stories of the children and families supported and describing the permanent and sustainable changes achieved.

When I joined Hope and Homes for Children in January 2011 in an entry level role in our Grants Partnerships team, I was eager to learn more about this amazing charity I had stumbled across.  Six years later I am leading this same team and we are one of the most successful grants fundraising teams of our size in the UK.

Over the course of my time here I have had amazing managers who have supported and challenged me to step up to new opportunities, and had opportunities to see our work first hand as well as to work with, and learn from, our incredible  programmes staff.

As well as the impact of our projects, what I love most is that as an organisation we are all aligned in our determination to achieve our vision.
