Our development team helps NCB create trusting relationships with a wide array of partners who share our passion for improving the lives of children and families.
Lawrence Walker - Head of Development
As Head of Development, Lawrence leads our work to strengthen sustainability and impact. He works in ever closer partnership with public organisations, funding institutions, trusts, donors, progressive businesses and research bodies to design innovative ways to use resources well. He has worked across fields including education, cultural/creative industries, localism and regeneration, and brings leadership expertise and an unshakeable belief in the power of lived experience to effect change.
Lawrence is on the board of social enterprise Wood Street Walls, and is a co-founder of a design route for London Design Festival based on the principles of designer/activist William Morris. He is a Norwich City fan and dreams of one day finally landing a kickflip on his skateboard.
Tara Williams - Development Manager
I am very happy to be working at NCB as Development Manager. My experience in business development for the voluntary sector spans more than 10 years, sourcing and submitting tender opportunities for local and national government departments, such as LAs, the Department for Education and the Ministry of Justice.
I will be working across all of the NCB Family, on new and existing opportunities to continue growing and developing the brilliant work we do for children and young people.
Clara Aldrich-Green - Development Officer
Clara’s role as Development Officer means she works across the organisation to coordinate fundraising and development activities, enabling NCB to secure new grants and contracts from sources including government bodies, research institutions and charitable trusts. Having previously worked in trusts, fundraising for a small education charity, she is excited to bring this experience into a multifaceted organisation which drives systemic change.
Outside of work, you’ll often find her with her nose in a book, watching sports, at the theatre or pretending she knows her way around London like a local.
