Kate Welch

Director and founder of Acumen Development Trust, Trustee of Greggs Foundation, Trustee of County Durham Community Foundation and a prominent and enthusiastic activist in Girlguiding UK... The list of Kate's interest and passions would gain a gold medal for the UK if there was such a category for charitable activity. Kate is motivated to ensure that social enterprise plays a significant part in the economic growth of the North East and that the Third Sector is recognised as a contributor to the social wellbeing of our communities.

Kate is based in the North East and has been a board member since 2014.
