An invisible force in the North and beyond; Vic works tirelessly to enable folk to achieve their dreams and ambitions, whatever their background.
Vic has over twelve year’s experience of working with national, award-winning youth charities and across the creative industries. She’s a massive advocate of the power of informal learning, DIY approaches and raw talent as routes to success – with a big, fat passion for social mobility and capital, and in turn it’s incredible strength to break down all sorts of barriers, from education and employment, to success in certain industries (oh, hello creative / arts / media world!). In recognition of her achievements to date, Vic was included on the prestigious Northern Power Women Future List 2017 and in the same year, awarded a mentor and funding through Flourish CIC’s supporting women in social enterprise scheme.
Originally and proudly from Sheffield, Vic decided that after her GCSE’s, she was done with the formalities of education, and went down a more vocational route, from a National Diploma in Media Production at College, to then graduating with HND in the same subject from Salford Uni. Now, this was quite a while ago, mind. It’s her personal journey, that drives her passion for helping people succeed – no matter who they are or where they’ve come from.
