Shraddha Pankhania leads the Westcombe Foundation, the charitable arm of family property developer Westcombe Group.
Shraddha has worked at the Foundation since 2020 when she joined the family-managed charity after a career in the air travel sector. Her primary responsibilities involve day-to-day management of the charity’s operations as well as providing strategic oversight and direction to the Foundation’s activities.
The Foundation has a long history of providing support to people all around the world through giving food, shelter and money to people suffering from disaster situations, providing emergency relief to victims, such as when the Foundation funded the building of new facilities at hospitals and schools in Kenya and India. The Foundation’s work in the UK includes the Foundation spending a number of years as the principal sponsor of the Royal Charity Polo Day, helping to raise significant sums for causes driven by HRH Prince Harry and the Prince of Wales. This money went towards helping orphans and vulnerable children is Lesotho affected by problems including poverty and the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
Shraddha has built on this vital work by driving the Foundation’s current focus on supporting homeless people in the UK, building on a track record of philanthropy in the UK and arranging partnerships with organisations such as Crisis UK and the Trussell Trust and Sense.
The Westcombe Foundation understands that not everybody lives in a place they can call home and is committed to providing support and assistance in meaningfully and permanently helping homeless people off the streets.
