I work with the Team to set the direction of Together for Change and design and evaluate projects in partnership with others. I am passionate about building community power and strength for a better life for all. We need a new way of thinking about wealth – one that is more evenly distributed and is mindful of the effects our actions on future generations.

Jessie Buchanan

Founder and Coordinator of Together for Change 

My role is to ensure everything we do at TfC makes a difference and is coordinated with our many partners. I believe in the power of working together towards a common goal as good relationships are at the heart of effective community development. I am passionate about finding sustainable solutions to the climate and ecological crisis which is crucial to the wellbeing of society and influences our ability to tackle inequalities relating to health both locally and globally.
