Angela leads the Research & Consulting team at NPC, driving the team’s focus on impact and managing its operations. The team supports and partners with organisations to help them articulate their purpose, manage to outcomes, understand their impact and learn.

Over the years, Angela has worked on a wide variety of consulting projects for both charities and funders, helping them to develop and refine their strategy and to measure their impact. She is currently working with a number of philanthropists to help them manage their giving. Angela led the piloting of NPC’s shared approach to measuring the Journey to EmploymenT, and its adaptation to Northern Ireland. She also led the development of a shared framework for financial capability.  She has also worked on several evaluations of funding programmes for both government and grant-making trusts and foundations, leading those for Communitybuilders and the Mayor’s Fund.
