Although Helene's career hasn't been in the women's sector exclusively, she has always gravitated to roles supporting women. She served for a year as a board member for Lambeth Women's Aid 1996-97. As a young woman she worked for 10 years at PAS (Pregnancy Advisory Service) supporting and counselling women making important decisions about their reproductive health. She has trained to be an Appropriate Adult, supporting vulnerable women in police interviews.
"WRC is unique in supporting women and women's groups that are often marginalised by the mainstream. This is what attracted me to apply for the position of board member."
