Amy is a social justice campaigner and CEO of Tutors United from January 2023. Her career has spanned national charities, local government and Parliament, leading teams and organisations to achieve impact across children’s rights, healthcare, poverty and equity.
Amy was previously a Director at Unicef UK and The Children’s Society, working with young people to secure policy and practice change – such as a government strategy to tackle the impact of toxic air on children’s health and hundreds of local authorities adopting a council tax exemption for care leavers. As a local councillor in Tower Hamlets, Amy led in cabinet on education and children’s social care, building strong partnerships with schools, businesses, housing associations, NHS services, local charities and families to drive rapid improvement.
Amy was CEO of Birthrights from 2018-2022, taking over from the founder CEO. Amy led the charity out of its start-up phase and through the pandemic, growing the reach of frontline programmes, tripling income and headcount, winning rights protections from stringent Covid restrictions, and spearheading their flagship inquiry on systemic racism in maternity care.
She is also an experienced non-executive director in the public and voluntary sectors – currently independent Chair of Tower Hamlets Together, the health and care partnership, and a Trustee of her orchestra in South London.
Amy is a co-parent to two lively boys and loves eating cheese, playing the oboe, soaking up queer culture and dancing – whether at the kitchen disco or in Soho!Close
