Sarah Halliwell
Development Manager

What’s your professional background?

I’ve worked at a senior level for a number a charities and organisations. Much of my work has involved developing major funding applications, project management, commissioning and contract management, fundraising, leadership and management.

What do you do (at Visionary)?

The focus of my role is to support Visionary members with all aspects of income generation and to increase collaboration across the sector.

What do you like most about working for Visionary?

I love working with all the different member organisations and seeing the difference they are making to the VI community across the UK. It’s great to be part of a dynamic team of people who are committed to improving the lives of people living with sight loss.

Why work in the VI sector?

It’s great to work with grassroots organisations who are making a real difference on the ground – without the incredible work of our members the lives of many visually impaired people would be significantly worse.

If you could be anywhere on Friday afternoon where would it be?

With my two teenage boys snorkelling with loggerhead turtles in the tropical waters of Lombok with an ice-cold cocktail waiting for me on the beach. Alternatively, and more realistically swimming in the sea in Anglesey with the boys and my friends with a big fire on the beach and watching the sun go down accompanied by a bottle of Prosecco!
