Development Worker (Fenland), Cambridgeshire Community and Voluntary Service
Vic has been working and volunteering for both large and small charities since 2011, although her volunteer life started at primary school whilst helping her Mum make the tea and cake for WI meetings! As a regular attendee at CCVS training sessions and the Volunteer for Cambridge conference, she is delighted to be joining the team.
Although initially trained as an accountant, Vic has always enjoyed supporting the teams she works with in a broad range of subjects including project management, people management, writing grant applications and long-term strategic planning. Seeing first-hand the importance of putting people at the heart of decision-making, she retrained as a facilitator and business coach and loves nothing more than helping people to achieve their dreams. She also has a love of technology and can often be found exploring useful pieces of software to help charities and businesses be more efficient in their day-to-day tasks. During the lockdowns of 2020 & 2021 she even turned her hand to facilitating online murder mystery parties.
As a Development worker, Vic is focused on delivering the Support Fenland project for Support Cambridgeshire, which aims to ensure that Fenland’s charities and community groups always have the resources they need to build healthier, happier communities.
