My role is to ensure that Power2’s life-changing work with young people is made possible by funding from corporates, trusts and foundations, local authorities and other partners and donors. I also lead our external engagement activities, with a view to making the need for our work and its impact as visible as possible.

Abigail’s 26 years' experience in non-profit and public sector organisations includes 9 years as Director of Arts and Young People at Arts Council England and 7 years as Deputy CEO of National Literacy Trust. She has led programme delivery and innovation, support to schools and local authorities and partnerships with leading UK and global businesses, charitable trusts, local and national governments, third sector organisations and the media.

I am driven by a firm belief that young people who face barriers are often those with the most insight, and if empowered they can achieve their full potential and more. I am also driven by the power of partnerships to create positive change for individuals, organisations and wider society.
