Having previously worked as Marketing Manager at West Cheshire College and, most recently, Head of Marketing for the North West Air Ambulance Charity, she brings with her a wealth of knowledge and expertise.

Emma commented “Originally from East Yorkshire, I moved to Merseyside in 1996 and loved the area so much I decided to stay. Having witnessed amazing regeneration and growth across the region, I really wanted to work with organisations who were passionate about making a difference to the lives of others. 

“My main goal is to ensure that businesses and communities across Merseyside and Lancashire understand what we do and are aware of the support available, as well as to highlight the amazing work that is being delivered across both regions.” 

The Community Foundations for Lancashire and Merseyside’s purpose is to drive as much investment as possible in to the community and voluntary sectors of these regions, to enrich the lives of its people and build stronger communities. 

Karen Morris, Development Director, said, “We are delighted to be expanding our team, and believe this demonstrates our commitment to further increasing the level of investment into Lancashire and Merseyside. We are confident we will see an even greater impact through the delivery of incredible projects, which make a huge a difference to the lives of our most vulnerable people.”
