A founder member of Hive Cancer Support, Maureen volunteered with the organisation for 10 years and joined the staff team in 2015.

She has been involved with grassroots community development work for the last 27 years and began her career as a Welfare Advice Officer at Dove House Community Trust.

Maureen’s insight into the financial cost of a Cancer diagnosis fuels her lobbying and campaign work to tackle health and social inequalities.

She has successfully overturned discriminatory legislative and departmental decisions, including Cancer thrivers being forced to attend gruelling Employment Support Allowance (ESA) assessments during the course of their treatments.

She also led a campaign to secure one off winter fuel payment for people going through Cancer treatment.
