Laura Ryder

We welcomed Laura Ryder as our Head of Finance and Operations in March.

She has joined us with a wealth of experience from the charity and public sector, most recently as the Executive Director of Development of Mercy UK, a charity supporting and resourcing individuals (and those helping them) navigating life-controlling issues. Laura will be primarily bringing strength to the ongoing development of UpRising's core operations, but we've already seen her throw herself into programmes, demonstrating her skills as a dragon at the last Environmental Leadership Programme event in London.
