Sarah is part of NPC’s Research and Consulting team. She is currently working on a number of projects for charitable funders. This includes conducting due diligence on organisations working in the refugee and asylum sector for an individual philanthropist and supporting management of the Stone Family Foundation’s Disadvantaged Youth portfolio.
Before joining NPC Sarah spent more than five years working at the Asfari Foundation where she managed a grant programme supporting education and employment projects for disadvantaged young people in the UK and Middle East. This involved identifying potential new partners and assessing applications, making recommendations to the Foundation’s board, monitoring project progress and developing programme strategy. Prior to this she worked as an Analyst for the consultancy firm Woodnewton Associates, conducting qualitative and quantitative research for charity and public sector clients.
Sarah has a degree in Theology and a Masters in Middle Eastern Studies, and studied Arabic at the University of Damascus in Syria. Sarah is a Trustee at Crohn’s and Colitis UK, where she chairs the charity’s governance committee.
Why I work at NPC:
It is a great privilege to work with charities and funders to help them increase their impact. I love the breadth of organisations NPC supports, and the knowledge, passion and commitment of the team.
