About our staff and some of our volunteers
Alongside our wonderfully active Trustees, the Alice Ruggles Trust staff and an ever-growing number of volunteers help us develop, carry out, and promote many of our wide range of activities.
Victoria Charleston is our Managing Director.
Victoria has a background in policy and campaigns in and around Westminster and had worked specifically in stalking for three years before coming to our Trust in 2020. She has been instrumental in a number of key successes across the sector including the extension of sentences for perpetrators and the introduction of Stalking Protection Orders.
Summer Gamble is our Administrative Support Officer.
Summer is a Masters graduate, whose dissertations have focused on ethics and crime within film and documentaries. She is currently working on her PhD in Media and Communications, with a focus on how social media and film affects young girls’ self-image.
Grace helps us with our social media output.
Grace is currently studying journalism but is about to transfer into criminology. With this she intends to work in helping women effected by violence and stalking. She is currently focused on bringing more awareness to these issues and how frequently they occur in our society.
