Amanda Illing

What do you do?

I am the CEO of Gatehouse, a barristers chambers.

Why did you first get involved with LLST?

I wanted to use my experience and skills to make a contribution and to be part of the incredible LLST team.

What is your favourite part of the role?

Probably everyone will say that it is being able to award grants to amazing organisations doing fantastic things.  However, I also enjoy being part of such a vibrant, creative, committed group of people.

What do you hope to see in the future for LLST/ the agencies we support?

That we continue raising essential funds to help as many advice agencies as possible.  I feel the need is going to be more acute as time goes on.  We need to help them keep their doors open so that they can reach the most vulnerable people.

When you are not working or volunteering what can you be found doing?

Narrow boating and organic farming.
