WLCC welcome new Trustee, Victoria Marsh

Charity News,Volunteers 17 October 2022
Wigan and Leigh Carers Centre would like to announce the appointment of a new trustee, Victoria Marsh.
As a solicitor at Russell & Russell Solicitors, with over 15 years experience in private client law, Victoria has experience in the preparation of Wills, Estate Administration, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection work. She specialises in supporting those who are vulnerable as a result of older age conditions such as dementia or mental health conditions and those with drug and alcohol addiction.
Born and bred in Wigan, Victoria has always wanted to give something back to her local community. Victoria says, “I know from personal experience, as a carer for my parents, the demand placed on carers. Carers provide an invaluable service for their loved ones and the community as a whole and deserve to be supported as much as possible to fulfil this role. The services and support offered and provided by WLCC are both inspiring and essential and I hope I can help to champion them across the borough as a Trustee.”
Appointed through an extensive recruitment process, Victoria has joined our group of dedicated Trustees.
Chief Officer, Bernadette Ashcroft said, “Charity trustees are the people who share ultimate responsibility for governing and directing how our Charity is managed and run. Victoria is committed to ensuring we provide quality carer-centred services and that our policies, systems and processes are rigorous.”
Welcome aboard Victoria. Exciting times are ahead for WLCC and the unpaid carers we champion.
