Our Team

We are a small team of volunteers, one paid member of staff, and a steering group—see below. Every penny goes straight to our impact projects, with core running costs paid for by a generous donor.

Chair - Jane

Jane is a Deputy Lieutenant of Oxfordshire. She chairs Youth Challenge Oxfordshire (YoCO) and is much involved in her local village. She has been a school governor for many years and was previously a trustee of Vale House Care Home for Dementia. She served as High Sheriff of Oxfordshire in 2017-2018. Her passion for social justice brought her to us.

Trustee - Neil

Neil is a marketer and market researcher and has held senior roles with Nielsen and Informa PLC. Today he helps companies with marketing data and research and is key to the development of OHM projects and campaigns. A handy person to know, he’s also on the Oxfordshire Community Foundation Board.

Trustee - Annette

Annette has recently retired having spent 10 years working for Oxfordshire Community Foundation, latterly as their Deputy Chief Executive. She brings a wealth of experience in charity governance and grant-making together with extensive knowledge of the Oxfordshire charitable sector. Annette also previously worked for a PR company, a publisher and as a PA in the Scotch Whisky industry. She plans to use her knowledge and skills to underpin OHM’s work with strong governance and strategic thinking.

Trustee - Kat

Kat is CEO of The Gatehouse in Oxford. She has personal lived experience in addition to nearly 30 years of extensive experience in senior leadership roles in the third sector. Over the course of her career, she has championed the voices of experts by experience, spearheading strategic management and change implementation as well as leading policy and service development initiatives.

Project Director - Yvonne

Yvonne is a people person with years spent as a School Governor and volunteering at Helen & Douglas House. Linking this up with solid business skills working in the motor industry and earlier studies, she now manages OHM. She wants to put her strengths to good use by helping others. She is indefatigable!
