Simone Ivatts

Governance and Grants Officer


Simone B&W












Simone joined the Foundation in July 2014 after a varied career as a bookkeeper, director of a health food workers’ co-op, proofreader and musician.

She works with the grants team, as well as being our office manager and volunteer coordinator.

Simone is a trustee of The Leeds Library, the oldest surviving subscription library of its type in the UK – she is a self-confessed ‘book nerd’ who also loves music.
