“We raised concerns about local incidents of disability hate crime affecting young people who use our services back in 2014. We contacted Victoria who supported us by working locally to address this, she took the work further and as a result went on to commission a Disability Hate Crime Report ‘Hidden Hate’ which highlighted significant under-reporting across London.
Her work helped to embed Disability Hate Crime in the ‘Safer Places’ Campaign in Kensington and Chelsea and also helped those affected to have the confidence to report incidents.
Thank you for your contribution Victoria.”Sue Redmond, Joint Chair Full of Life, June 2019
“Victoria’s contributions to our community through the years have been enormous. Her dedication and love for our Borough has been consistent and much appreciated. She worked with the voluntary sector to organise two huge events held in the Kensington Town Hall, which gave older residents of the Borough a unique and memorable experience.
Tea for the Queen was held to commemorate the Queen’s 90th birthday in 2016. It was the largest indoor event celebrating the Queen’s 90thbirthday in the country and gave over 360 of our elderly residents an unforgettable experience.
The Vote 100 Community Tea, organised by Victoria in 2018 in the Kensington Town Hall, commemorated 100 years of women having received the vote. There was an exceptional attendance of over 300 elderly members from our diverse communities.
Thank you Victoria.”Zara Ghods, Kensington and Chelsea Forum, June 2019
“I am writing to thank you with the utmost sincerity for your assistance when I was researching for my dissertation project. Thank you for your time; your knowledge and first-hand experience of the campaigns was absolutely instrumental in completing my research and helped me to create a piece of work that I am incredibly proud of.
I wanted to get in touch to let you know that, with your help, my dissertation received a 1st class grade. I was also awarded 1st Class Honours for my degree in Politics and Parliamentary Studies. Since then, I was granted a place on the Civil Service Fast Stream.
I would not have been able to achieve what I did without your kindness and generosity.”ML, May 2019

Best wishes for your continued success.”TS, W11, May 2017
