CLaire Arnott

Claire joined Renaissance Foundation in November 2018 after working in several charities, including NSPCC and Marie Curie.  She has been really inspired by the supporters she has met, as they know the difference their money, time and expertise has in supporting RF and, more importantly, the huge impact that has on the young people we work with.  She is particularly ambitious to grow our support base and strengthen our operations so we can support many more young people. Her current specialism is in Fundraising and Office Operations.
