Birthrights is delighted to welcome Alice Waddington to the Birthrights fold as our Advice and Legal Officer. Alice replaces Reilly Willis who left Birthrights in April after being offered a full time Lectureship in Law close to home. Alice will be looking after our advice service; responding to enquiries, ensuring all materials are up to date, and growing and developing the service.
Alice has worked in the Charity sector consistently since graduating from Queen Mary, University of London in 2003. In 2009, she began the Graduate Diploma in Law at BPP Law School whilst working full time and sat her final exams for the Legal Practice Course a month before giving birth to her second child. She has been a dedicated Project Manager for many years, running projects to improve outcomes for some of the UK’s poorest children and has always been committed to using her skills to support her local community, volunteering at the Free Legal Advice Centre at Toynbee Hall whilst also being a vocal member of the Governing body at a nearby school. Having grown up in two continents, Alice is fluent in four languages and hopes to reach women who have yet to encounter our work. She is extremely excited to be joining Birthrights!
