Wendy Afonso-Cole

Grants Officer

Wendy has well over 10 years experience of managing and distributing public funds to communities in a range of sectors across Northern Ireland and the UK, particularly working as part of the National Lottery Community Fund where she worked for close to 13 years. She is really inspired by seeing the real difference ordinary people with extraordinary ideas can make in their local communities. Wendy can usually be found exploring forests and beaches with my son and cocker spaniel Alfie, foraging locally or in the garden experimenting with growing food with the dream of one day being completely self sufficient! She also enjoys travelling and reading.
