Gilly Sowden University Project Worker

Gilly Sowden
University Project Worker

I am a Project Worker for the organisation, based at the University of Exeter.

This is a new and exciting role that recognises and is responding to the need for better awareness and prevention of sexual violence on campus, and improved support for students who have been affected.

I am also a volunteer for DRCSAS and together with the other wonderful volunteers we offer support on our telephone helpline and by email.

I’ve spent most of my career in business in the creative sector and I also run a charity that supports girls and women in Kenya to overcome period poverty. As well as a range of skills and experience that I bring to this amazing organisation, I am committed to continually learning from our service users.

I’m really proud to be part of DRCSAS and the life changing work that is done here by the team.
