Liz has been co-chair of JWA with Hilda for the last 5 years. Her involvement with the charity started as an education volunteer. She has been a magistrate for the last 20 years sitting in the adult, youth and family courts. She learned about JWA at a magistrates training event where she saw literature about different organisations providing support to victims of abuse including JWA. She says she was naively shocked to see that there was a need for JWA's services within the Jewish community and was eager to use her skills and experience to help Jewish women. She has learned a huge amount about the issues surrounding domestic abuse within our community and says it has been a real privilege to work with the amazingly committed professionals in the office.
