Claire Gordon

Claire works in NPC’s Research and Consulting team as Principal: Funder Evaluation and Learning. She is currently working with the Santander Foundation to implement a shared measurement framework for their digital and financial empowerment fund. She is also supporting The Children’s Society to develop their approach to impact measurement, following NPC’s recent work with the organisation to develop a theory of change. 

Before joining NPC, Claire worked at Social Life, leading place-based research and evaluation projects to understand local communities and how changes in the built environment, or local social infrastructure, impact on them. She also brings experience in academic research, where she focused on market-based approaches in international development, building on her MA in Anthropology of Development from SOAS. She started her career working in fundraising for a digital inclusion charity in Brazil. 

In a personal capacity, Claire is involved in grant-making in the environmental and community assets sectors through the William Grant Foundation. She is particularly interested in understanding how funders can incorporate learning into their work.
