Pronouns: she/her

Charlie joined Action Tutoring in August 2018 as the Communications and Engagement Coordinator.

Currently, as Communications and Policy Manager, Charlie oversees the charity’s day-to-day communication with its network of volunteers, supporting and collaborating with the whole staff team to ensure we communicate well. These communications help volunteers progress along their journey as inspiring, impactful tutors, keeping them informed and sharing more ways to take part in our work. Charlie also supports the CEO with Action Tutoring’s policy and advocacy work, monitoring developments in education policy that might affect the children and young people the charity supports.

Previously, while working as a government policy adviser, Charlie chaired a voluntary school outreach programme aiming to improve social mobility and diversity in the Civil Service.

Before joining the team full time, Charlie volunteered with Action Tutoring for a year and found it inspiring to see her pupils’ confidence and self-expression improving each week.

Charlie studied Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic at university and still loves learning about the stranger parts of medieval history and language.
