Appointed Grants Fundraising Manager


UK100’s primary purpose is to support a local-led rapid transition to Net Zero and Clean Air. To accelerate action, they bring together the most influential leaders across the country to learn together and agree on priorities for legislative and regulatory change while empowering them to engage with national decision-makers. They provide their network with the knowledge, tools and connections to make this happen.
