Rachel Ireland - Creative Coach

I set up The Creative Map having worked in and with the third sector for over 15 years.

As a fundraising professional I have worked for national charities including The Prince's Trust, Nacro and Embrace, plus countless smaller not-for-profit organisations on a freelance basis.


I'm a huge advocate for the third sector; the value it adds to the economy and the great work it does on the frontline.


Running my own organisation gives me an even clearer insight into the responsibility of this task, and I choose to split my time between running The Creative Map and supporting other not-for-profit organisations to thrive.
