Karen is the Executive Director for the Guernsey Disability Alliance (GDA), and a founding member of the Equality Working Group and Access for All. Karen’s passion for equality runs into the priority for Guernsey and Alderney to be more accessible so islanders can take part in all areas of community life, accessing buildings, cervices, reading materials, viewing websites, and receiving excellent customer service. Recruiting Richard Evans as Chair in 2016 meant Access for All could become more focused, although as we are all volunteers time is always limited. Karen took on the Vice Chair role to cover information (with Ben Jones), Activities and Services and has been fortunate to shadow Tony for the last few years on the Physical side of Access.
In 2016 Karen qualified in CAE Access auditing and the Equality Act
