Victoria brings knowledge of the UK charity sector and governance to our board. In her previous role as a Director at the National Audit Office, Victoria reported to Parliament on government's engagement with the charity sector. Her report on the Charity Commission prompted the Government to bring forward the Charities Act 2016 to address gaps in the Commission’s powers.
Early in her career she worked as a Finance Manager for two international charities: Medecins sans Frontieres in North Sudan, and subsequently International Rescue Committee in Afghanistan. Victoria was a trustee of the charity EveryChild UK when it made the bold and unusual decision to transfer the charity's assets to a global network of national organisations in order to better pursue its charitable objectives.
In her current role as Director of Integration at Somerset NHS Foundation Trust Victoria is leading plans to create a single, integrated NHS provider for the county of Somerset. Victoria is a Chartered Accountant by training and is a member of our Finance and Audit Committee.
