Denise Fielding - Chair

Having responded to an advert, Denise was selected as a Trustee and shortly became the Chair.  She has served in that role for nearly 9 years and is happy to do whatever is needed to get jobs done!

Committed to volunteering for over 40 years locally, regionally and nationally -  even when working as a Principal of a Further Education College offering education and training across South Essex, Denise wanted to do more in retirement.

Becoming a Trustee provided an opportunity to use professional skills, experience and knowledge as well as to give back and contribute to a community. Action for Family Carers as a Charity offered just what she was looking for – commitment to a cause, giving a voice and campaigning for unpaid Carers across Essex from as young as primary school age to ‘more mature years’, raising awareness and much needed funds.
