I manage the Frontline Network and the VRF (Vicar’s Relief Fund) and have previously worked in housing advice and support roles, both nationally and in London. When not juggling work and family life you’ll find me eating ice-cream and plotting my next adventure.
Mark Phillippo - Impact Manager and Interim Head of Development (until November 2021)
I support the team with grant assessment and payments. I have worked in a variety of roles in the supported housing and homelessness sectors for the past 20 years. I enjoy live music, the theatre and playing 5-a-side football.

I have previously worked in frontline homelessness sector roles, Fundraising, project managing intervention schemes supporting women in contact with the CJS, International Development work in the UK, East/West Africa and North Slope Borough of Alaska through to the scuba diving industry in S.E. Asia. Outside of work, I love adding extra stamps in my passport, photography and leading an amphibious lifestyle.

I work on the VRF assessing grant applications, making payments and dealing with enquiries. I’ve worked in the charity sector in both a voluntary and paid capacity for over 18 years, including working for charities associated with mental health, substance misuse and end-of-life care. In my spare time I love watching films and crocheting items which I photograph in different places around London and the UK.
Abi Tsuts - VRF Coordinator
I support the Charity team with assessments and payments. I have worked in the charity sector for 8 years, with the last 6 in a grant giving. In my spare time, I like eating, reading and at times, I am known to actually enjoy doing DIY jobs around the house!

I assess grant applications and prepare successful applications for payment. I have worked in the voluntary and public sector in a paid and voluntary basis- primarily in housing.
