Kathryn Rossiter landscape
Kathryn joined Thrive as our Chief Executive in 2012 having previously worked in both the private and public sectors.

In addition to leading the Senior Management Team, Kathryn provides oversight of the charity’s governance and is responsible for ensuring that the Charity complies with its statutory and legal obligations. She leads our work with many of our partners and represents Thrive and the wider STH community in our policy work.

She is chair of the Green Care Coalition – a voluntary collaboration of organisations like Thrive who want to see better recognition for the use of nature in health & wellbeing services.

Kathryn has always been interested in the natural environment - her first job was monitoring environmentally sensitive area programmes for the then Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAFF) - and enjoys developing her low maintenance wildlife-friendly garden when her endurance sport hobbies allow.

Kathryn now works a 3-day week with some of her responsibilities for internal matters delegated to the Chief Finance & Operating Officer.
