Sam Thomas’ Profile
I have been Chief Executive of The Harbour for over six years.
The Harbour is a Bristol-based charity that provides psychotherapy and counselling for people affected by a life-threatening illness. In my role as Chief Executive I lead on all aspects of TheHarbour’s activities, from strategic business planning and service delivery, to financial management and human resources.
Key achievements include:
• Increasing income by 75% over the past five years.
• Negotiating contracts with national and local commissioners for new and existing services.
• Managing organisational restructures and recruiting new Trustees.
• Securing multi-year grants from trusts and foundations.
I have more than 15 years’ experience of fundraising, management and leadership in the voluntary sector, working for a range of national and local organisations. Outside of my work at The Harbour, I am a counsellor and psychotherapist-in-training.
