Sarah joined us in 2016, having previously worked as a Senior Policy Advisor in the Cabinet Office, sitting within the Social Investment and Finance team.
She leads on our childhood obesity programme, aimed at closing the childhood obesity inequality gap in Lambeth and Southwark. In this role, she leads on the strategic direction of the programme, its impact management and work to influence broader policy and industry around decisions related to children’s access to nutrition.
Programme Director Sarah Hickey shares her reflections on COVID-19's impact on our childhood obesity programme.
Programme Director Sarah Hickey shares how we are continuing to support families at risk of food insecurity as part of our response to COVID-19.
For food programmes to have a meaningful impact on health inequities, they need a persistent eye on two things: access and quality.
Where children grow up is a big predictor of their chances of becoming overweight or obese. We think the strategy can go further to tackle childhood obesity.
