Amy Mitchell

“Amy’s career has always focused on management of services which benefit those who are more vulnerable. After qualifying as a Physiologist, she moved to Tanzania to help improve delivery of health services in rural areas and thoroughly enjoyed immersing herself in learning Kiswahili. On her return to the UK, she worked for the British Red Cross delivering support services within London hospitals, before moving to Australia to facilitate access to medical facilities for families who lived hundreds of kilometres inland. It was in this role where she first had an insight into the effects of domestic abuse and sexual abuse.

“Once she moved back to the UK, she decided to change her focus to managing domestic abuse services and was responsible for delivery of IDVA, Outreach, MARAC and IRIS domestic abuse support programmes within Warwickshire. She thoroughly enjoyed learning the criminal and civil remedies available to survivors, and is keen to implement these within the context of the Swindon and Wiltshire Sexual Abuse Referral Centre setting.

Amy lives in the Cotswolds with her husband and enjoys swimming, country walks and racket sports”
