Lily Meisner

Lily is a Consultant in NPC’s Research and Consulting team. She has worked with a range of charities and funders, understanding and establishing how to improve their impact. As part of the Open Philanthropy programme team, Lily is passionate about transparent and inclusive grant-making, as well as user involvement and including peoples’ lived-experience in decision making. She is also interested in the role charities can play in supporting young peoples’ mental health, and the potential for integrative and user-led initiatives to play a part in this. Lily also works alongside colleagues to explore how funders can improve diversity, equity and inclusion in their grant-making practices.

Prior to joining NPC, Lily volunteered at St Mungo’s, working with clients and supporting staff in one of its Covid-19 emergency accommodation hotels, and worked at a Trussell Trust foodbank.
