Black Country Women's Aid Staff Stories

Cara Donald | Women’s Justice Services

I did my degree in Criminology & Social Policy and worked in social research before joining BCWA in 2015. I wanted to work for Women’s Aid as I think their work is vital to women & children’s safety. My first role was Community Champions Co-ordinator in Dudley and I then worked as DA Advocate in Sandwell. Now I’m a Female Offender Program Facilitator: an ideal combination of my interest in support work with my background in Criminology.
