Where are they now?

Sarah Miguel leads on fundraising, commercial and digital initiatives at the People’s History Museum (PHM), the national museum of democracy, telling the story of its development in Britain: past, present, and future. Her role involves building relationships with partners and funders to drive change and build the organisations resilience and sustainability, helping the museum continue to provide opportunities for people of all ages to learn about, be inspired by, and get involved in ideas worth fighting for.

Her previous role at BBC Children in Need focused on distributing funds to address disadvantages faced by children and young people, and she remains involved with grantmaking as a freelance assessor. She previously studied at the University of Manchester and led social investment and equality and diversity programmes in the social housing sector. She has a successful track record of supporting the growth of social enterprises and securing grants and corporate sponsorship for various charities. Sarah has worked in the charity sector for over a decade, and in her spare time serves as a Trustee and volunteer at Manchester Action on Street Health (MASH).

“Within the fellowship, we had the headspace and expertise on hand to imagine the future for the sector and our organisation. It was a unique opportunity to re-think resilience and explore income generation opportunities. I particularly enjoyed meeting the entrepreneurial leaders of arts organisations across the UK. I continue to benefit from the network of fundraising support I built during the programme.”
