Cerys Shepherd (She/Her) 

Director of Fundraising

What do you do at Become?

I work with Become’s phenomenal supporters and talented team to lead the way in raising the funds that make the extraordinary work Become does possible 

Can you say a bit about your past experience and qualifications?

Over the last 20 years, I have worked across the third sector in voluntary and professional roles, fundraising for a variety of causes including; the arts, international development, autism, and education. I know from personal experience how critical it is to ensure that care-experienced voices are heard and that we achieve a care system which gives all care-experienced young people a fair start in life.

What do you like about working at Become? 

Become is truly an inspiring charity with the strongest values I have encountered in my career. I love being part of a team who are focused and committed to improving the lives of care-experienced people.

What drives you?

Empathy, kindness, the belief that change is possible. (And plenty of caffeine).

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

I can generally be found in the garden or walking by the river. I will probably bore you by talking about 20th Century cinema, vintage fashion, or my love of Suffolk.
