Helen Mthiyane

Helen joined the Alliance in 2015 and is our Programme Manager.  

She previously worked in programme and project management roles within the voluntary sector including at the Prince’s Trust, Media for Development, Khulisa and the Ramblers. 

Helen’s interest in evidence use came about whilst establishing Khulisa in the UK (a branch of the South African NGO), delivering violence reduction programmes in prisons and schools. She worked with researchers to build the evidence base for the organisation’s therapeutic interventions and developed a monitoring and evaluation framework for its Milestones Mentoring scheme.

Helen has also run grants programmes to increase innovation within the prison service (at Media for Development) and to support community projects for young people (at the Prince’s Trust).

Helen has a degree in English from the University of Nottingham and loves all things to do with words.
