Over the last five years, I have seen Patchwork grow from strength to strength. It’s work with underrepresented communities, especially young people, is not only important to get young people involved in our democracy, but has also completely changed so many people’s lives.
Claire was appointed CEO of Patchwork in 2023 following roles in government as National Operations Director for a large public delivery body and and Head of Data Portfolio at the Central Digital and Data Office. After studying Music at St Hugh’s College Oxford, Claire spent her early career in event management and business support for a variety of charities and arts organisations. She graduated from the Patchwork Masterclass Programme during her first role in the public service.
