About Us Our People Fundraising Team Paula Sudbury South West Community Manager Paula is the Community Manager for the South West and raises funds and awareness for Brainwave with individuals and corporates, as well as local geographic or other communities of interest. Whilst working in the private sector in management of direct sales and marketing in the USA and the UK, her heart belonged to the voluntary sector where she volunteered for many years. In the early nineties Paula joined large national charities, managing fundraising across various income streams and doing business development. As a qualified Funding Advisor she worked on behalf of the EU and UK Governments to bring EU and relevant match funding to South East and South West England through cross sector consortia. Paula enjoys bringing people together, breaking down barriers, and helping others to achieve their goals and is delighted to speak to anybody who would like to support or partner Brainwave locally.
