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.
Victoria is a trustee of medical humanitarian charity Medecins sans Frontieres UK. 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 at the health regulator NHS Improvement, Victoria works with the boards of NHS trusts to ensure their effective governance and financial management. Victoria is a Chartered Accountant by training and is a member of our Finance and Audit Committee.
