Joanna Pienkowska


Joanna has lived in South East London since she moved from Poland as a child. She has experience volunteering with various charities, most recently supporting fundraising for Freedom from Torture. She currently works at the Association of Charitable Foundations, where she engages on policy and regulatory issues of interest to funders, the organisations they support and wider civil society. Recognising that refugees face many barriers in finding work, Joanna supports Refugee Cafe’s mission of creating opportunities for refugees in Lewisham to gain employment and share their culinary talents with us all.
