Our Trustees


Hazel Kinsey


I joined Changing Lives Together initially as a volunteer at the Very Green Grocery before becoming a Trustee of the organisation, where I am responsible for ensuring our compliance and governance is carried out. Professionally, I have worked for a large consultancy for 20 years and am currently in the risk management section which is useful for my role as a Changing Lives Together Trustee.  

From the first encounter with the charity, I was impressed by the empathetic nature of the people who work here, their passion to help others is exemplified in every aspect of the different parts of the organisation.  I’m proud to be part of the team and hope that I can bring my experience and enthusiasm to the role of trustee, whilst making a difference along the way.  

I’m married and live in Mobberley, Cheshire and, being ex-cabin crew, I enjoy watching the planes whilst walking the dogs on the country lanes.
