Caron Walton - Quality Assurance and Systems Coordinator

Caron leads on quality standards and internal systems making sure Key Fund’s processes are compliant and efficient, from investment procedures and IT to contracts and its Social Impact Framework.

In the 90s, she ran an award-winning business in the music industry, before working in the social enterprise sector for 20 years, including founding the Sheffield Social Enterprise Network. She joined Key Fund in June 2015.

An Associate Researcher for the Third Sector Research Centre and a Royal Society of the Arts fellow, Caron also secured a first class BA with honours degree in business and management.

Caron unwinds by climbing mountains. Caron agrees with the philosophers, adventurers and poets, that ‘there’s no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from’ (Kierkegaard). She’s also, on the quiet, a Manchester United fan.
