Georgina has 20 years’ experience in operational delivery roles, both in the public and voluntary sector.
She gained a MSc in voluntary sector management from the Centre for Charity Effectiveness; Bayes Business School, City, London University in 2021.
Georgina is committed through her work at SOS to ensuring people have access to timely, compassionate and trauma informed mental health support within their local communities.
Georgina has a particular interest in the over representation of Autistic, Black and people with learning disabilities in medium and high secure mental health hospitals.
In 2018 she was part of a coalition that campaigned for the creation of the Mental Health Units (Use of Force Act) often referred to as ‘Senis law’ named after a young Black man, Olaseni Lewis, who tragically died due to being forcibly restrained when admitted to a mental health unit as a voluntary patient.
Georgina is committed to being part of system change within the mental health space, which includes championing the role and rights of people with lived experience.
Georgina can often be found listening (and singing along badly!) to music, especially the bands Texas and Florence and the Machine. She loves the colour green and the opportunity to relax with a good book or movie.
