ABOUT

Branka is a fundraising specialist with over 15 years’ experience of working in the Third Sector. Since the birth of her daughter, she has been working as a freelancer in order to balance senior fundraising roles with a busy family life. Branka has shaped fundraising strategies for a wide range of prominent charities. Her key expertise is in generating income growth and support for the cause by providing strategic leadership to fundraising teams.
Branka joined Potential Plus UK when inspired by their work in the field of research and support for children with dual or multiple exceptionality (DME). She is currently a trustee for Potential Plus UK. Passionate about global social justice, education and health equality as well as the refugee crisis, she has campaigned to further these causes both in a professional and personal capacity. She firmly believes that every child deserves to fulfil their potential, regardless of their background or parents’ social status and, in particular, that disadvantaged children should get the support they need to flourish and prosper in life.
