Margaret has had a rich range of experiences in the charity and public sector. She was recently a director in the British Red Cross where she was responsible for developing the Society’s work in the UK. She has also held senior management positions at the Refugee Council, the NHS and local government. All of these roles focused on achieving a better deal for vulnerable people. Margaret lives in London and no longer works full time.
Margaret visited Nepal with PHASE in 2007 and saw a number of our projects. She came away determined to be part of PHASE and has been a supporter since then. She passionately believes in the core approach of PHASE – delivering integrated programmes which facilitate self-empowerment, and are sustainable. She thinks one of the strengths of PHASE is its family feel and the enthusiasm it creates amongst its supporters. As trustee she wants to ensure that more people and organisations know about the organisation and the impact of its work.
Margaret still works with a number of charities. She is trustee of two social care charities and is also Chair of a Board of School Governors in Islington where she lives.
