We are very pleased to welcome Nick to the team. Nick is our new Operations Coordinator and we are thrilled he has decided to join us at Regenerate.
At the end of 2013 Nick moved back to London from Kenya, where he spent a year and a half in a capacity building and support role for two charities in Nairobi. The first was a youth-led organisation working with young slum dwellers, giving them marketable skills in film making (from writing to directing and camera work to post production), and also creating educational films and documentaries about slum life. He then moved to an organisation working to support and campaign for women and girls living with disability. This role, based in Nairobi, regularly took him to small community support groups nationwide – often hours drive away from the nearest paved road.
Pre-Kenya, Nick completed a Masters degree in Voluntary Sector Management from Cass Business School, and managed the grant making of Church Urban Fund; working with hundreds of community organisations across England – some years ago even with Regenerate.
