Lisa Withey

Development Director

All the Team

Lisa joined TWF as Events and Development Manager in November 2019. Lisa spent her career working in a London based charity, Starlight Children’s Foundation, which supports children and young people living with life-threatening and life-shortening conditions.

During her time at Starlight, Lisa worked as a Wish Granter, working directly with children, their families and their medical teams to deliver bespoke, once-in-a-lifetime wishes. Lisa then moved roles, becoming the Programme Manager and Deputy Safeguarding Lead, responsible for seven national programmes delivering support to children in hospitals and hospices nationwide; each programme was grounded in research, provided measurable outcomes, and sought financial and gift in kind support from multi-national corporates.

Lisa brings with her a drive to promote equality and inclusion, particularly in areas of marked adversity, and a love of vegan brownies!
