Trustee

Alice Harper

Experience

Alice has significant executive director experience in the public sector and the Third Sector in both England and Scotland. As well as this, Alice has trustee experience in large national charities and, latterly, was CEO of Quarriers – one of Scotland’s leading charities, supporting the most vulnerable in society to help them achieve their potential.

Personal Statement

“Supporting those in need has never been so important. The world we live in has never been so challenging and complex, especially for young people. Additionally, charities who do amazing work with those who need support are increasingly reliant on funds to ensure sustainability, but above all, to make a difference to the lives of those who need it most.

This is the reason why I jumped at the opportunity to be on the board of Trustees at Essentia – a perfect fit with my values.”
