Tim Bissett - Charity Director
I manage the St Martin-in-the-Fields Charity, overseeing the Radio 4 Christmas Appeal, The Vicar's Relief Fund and the Frontline Network.
Natalie King - Head of Development
I manage the Frontline Network and the VRF (Vicar’s Relief Fund) and have previously worked in housing advice and support roles, both nationally and in London. When not juggling work and family life you’ll find me eating ice-cream and plotting my next adventure.
Amanda Bennett - Partnerships Manager
I manage the relationships with our 10 Partners and organise our Annual Conference. I have previously worked in frontline roles, Fundraising, Project Management and International Development work in the UK and West Africa, as well as in the diving industry in S.E. Asia. Outside of work, I love adding extra stamps in my passport, photography and leading an amphibious lifestyle.
Natasha Peter – VRF Coordinator
I work on the VRF assessing grant applications, making payments and dealing with enquiries. I’ve worked in the charity sector in both a voluntary and paid capacity for over 18 years, including working for charities associated with mental health, substance misuse and end-of-life care. In my spare time I love watching films and crocheting items which I photograph in different places around London and the UK.
Abi Tsuts - VRF Coordinator
I support the Charity team with assessments and payments. I have worked in the charity sector for 8 years, with the last 6 in a grant giving. In my spare time, I like eating, reading and at times, I am known to actually enjoy doing DIY jobs around the house!
Barbara Flemmings - VRF Coordinator
I assess grant applications and prepare successful applications for payment. I have worked in the voluntary and public sector in a paid and voluntary basis- primarily in housing. I have an interest in current affairs, routemasters, Arsenal, collecting vinyl, the Tom Robinson Band, ballet and netball. I also have a football coaching certificate.
Mark Phillippo - Impact Manager
I support the team with grant assessment and payments. I have worked in a variety of roles in the supported housing and homelessness sectors for the past 20 years. I enjoy live music, the theatre and playing 5-a-side football.
Marcus Loney-Evans - Policy and Communications Officer
I work on the regularity and quality of the communications we have with frontline workers, to ensure that we communicate feedback from the Frontline Network with key decision makers. I have previously worked for four years as a Parliamentary Assistant and Senior Caseworker for a Member of Parliament. My hobbies include playing the guitar, running a south London Sunday football team, and avoiding Arsenal’s away results.
Joe Coules - Local Network Coordinator
I help coordinate and promote the Training Fund, Shadowing Fund, Event Fund to frontline workers, as well as supporting events in areas that we do not have partners. I have previously worked and volunteered across the charity sector in homelessness services, criminal justice services and youth services. Outside of work I play tag rugby, am constantly reading and drinking bubble tea.
