Co-optative Member

Mark Yeadon has been a member of the Foundation’s Board of Governors since 2006. 

In early 2019 we spoke with Mark about his 13 year involvement with the Foundation

What is your role at Cripplegate Foundation and what motivated you to get involved?

After several years of being a 'hands-on' volunteer as a befriender and mentor, I wanted to get involved in a strategic volunteering role helping Cripplegate deliver positive change through evidence based grantmaking dealing with the major issues affecting local people.

Tell us a bit about your past experience​.​

I bring decades of experience working in London Local Government and running a research and policy consultancy working with the public and charitable sectors.

What have you enjoyed most during your time here?

My favourite part of my time with the Foundation has been helping it move away from a very traditional grantmaker to becoming evidence-based, strategic and innovative, which in turn I hope has helped it have a greater impact.
