Meet Francesca-Grants Co-ordinator

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012 | Posted in Blog

Welcome to the second in a very special series of FTCT team profile blog posts. Most of you will have heard Francesca’s re-assuring voice on the other end of the phone-line, but you may not have ever met her in person.
Well now you can – meet Francesca, Grants Co-ordinator here at FTCT…

In 10 words or less, tell us what you do at FTCT.….
Talking to families, helping them get the grants they need.

What makes you passionate about FTCT?
Before joining FTCT I was working in frontline services as a support worker; helping families in person and sometimes applying for grants on their behalf. It’s amazing to now be in a position to give families the grants they so desperately need for their children. We’re such a tiny organisation but I’m constantly reminded what an enormous difference we’re able to make to the children and families that approach us and that makes me really passionate about what we do!

What is the best part of your job?
When I can call a family I’ve been working with for months to make sure they make the strongest case possible and tell them that we’ve done it! FTCT can give the grant that will change their child’s life. There’s nothing that beats that feeling.
