Jane Dodson

Jane is our Open Philanthropy Programme Manager, working within NPC’s Innovation and Development Team.

Jane’s background is in international relations, using participatory methods to co-design projects in Africa and Asia. She has worked with several UK charities and foundations before being enticed into local government, working on a European climate change adaptation programme, and community led regeneration projects. Her research interests include evidence informed policy, and she has more recently supported community organisations to plan strategically and measure impact, both at Locality and in a freelance capacity.

Jane chairs The Advocacy People and often finds her best ideas come whilst crunching through the shingle on the Sussex coast where she lives.

I enjoy working with inspirational people to create meaningful impact
