Victoria Veale (formerly Samuel), BA 2008

VictoriaVealeI graduated from Essex in 2008 with a 2:1 BA in Sociology and Media Studies. I really loved my time at Essex as an undergraduate. I moved to Suffolk in 2009. I got married back in 2011, hence the name change!

In 2010 I started I became a support worker supporting people with learning difficulties in their own homes. I also worked with children at a play scheme with children with learning difficulties. In 2012 I started to work for Suffolk Social Services as a Community Care Practitioner.

Among my interests are Sociology (of course!), social care, working in the community, politics, journalism (was part of the rabbit newspaper when at Essex). Social care and work around that, interests me greatly and disability equality is a big part of that interest.

Faye Savage, BA 2009

Image of Faye Savage, BA 2009I currently work as Lived Experience Officer at ecdp, a disabled people’s user-led organisation in Essex.

The role involves some research, policy and comms, but I particularly enjoy working with disabled people to understand the issues which affect them and trying to create change using this ‘lived experience’.

I am interested in issues related to equality, and particularly disability.
