Sufina joined City Bridge Trust on a year-long secondment from the Big Lottery Fund in August 2016, where she worked as a Policy and Learning Manager within their England Local Team. In her role at CBT, Sufina will be responsible for developing their next funding strategy (2018-2023), through a mixture of research and external-facing conversations with a range of different people.
Sufina also works as a freelance BBC Children in Need grants assessor, and she currently volunteers as a trustee and a buddy for two different learning disability charities based in Islington.
Prior to joining the Big Lottery Fund, Sufina had held a variety of service delivery and business development roles within not-for-profits, charities and housing associations. She worked mainly with adults with learning disabilities and associated conditions and older people.
