Louise McCathie

Louise has acquired a wide range of experience during her 13 years in the charity sector. First at the National Institute of Conductive Education, then ChildLine and in more recent years leading the British Heart Foundation’s Central England events team before moving to Mencap, as Fundraising Manager for the Midlands, helping to organise several high-profile national campaigns.  Her broad experience has stood her in good stead for her current role of Director of Fundraising at Birmingham Children’s Hospital where she has forged productive long-term partnerships and in doing so raised both the profile of the Hospital and led her team to triple fundraising income. 

Louise also acts as Deputy Chair for Fundraising with the Association of NHS Charities, plays an active role with Thrive in Birmingham and in 2014 was awarded Future Face of Business by Birmingham Chamber of Commerce.
