Kathryn Foley


Kathryn is based in East Boldon in South Tyneside and has always been very passionate about taking part in sport and exercise and the benefits this can bring (running and athletics were her own sports of choice, but still loves a team game!). 

For the past 15 years she has worked at The National Lottery Community Fund most recently as Regional Funding Manager for the NE and Cumbria.  In this role she managed a team of Funding Officers and oversaw the delivery of Reaching Communities Funding. As well as liaising with community sector organisations, she set up partnerships and collaborated with a wide range of stakeholders (such as Local Authorities, other Funders, and infrastructure organisations), to ensure that the best possible funding decisions were made.

Prior to working within the voluntary and community sector she has experience in public and private sector roles in Performance Management, Marketing, and Project Management.
