Board of Trustees

Louise McCathie

Louise has acquired a wide range of experience during her 19 years in the charity sector. She joined NHS Charities Together in January 2021, moving from Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, where she had been Director of Fundraising since 2009. During this time, she has managed a range of successful campaigns such as The Big Hoot and delivered multiple appeals which led her team to triple the charity’s fundraising income. 

She started her career at the National Institute of Conductive Education, then ChildLine, followed by leading the British Heart Foundation’s Central England events team, before moving to Mencap, helping to organise several high-profile national campaigns.

In 2015, Louise was presented The Gill Astarita Fundraiser of the Year Award at the Institute of Fundraising’s National Fundraising Awards and Fundraising Team of the Year at The Charity Times Awards.
