Emma Williamson


As a dedicated community and social care professional, Emma has spent her career advocating for equal opportunities and supporting those in need. Her passion for creating positive change in our communities has driven her to work tirelessly in various roles, including as a Community Impact Manager for BEC, most recently, as a Cumberland Councillor for the new unitary authority.

Throughout her career, Emma has worked collaboratively with a wide range of individuals and organisations, using her skills and expertise to create lasting change in our communities. Her approach is rooted in the belief that connections and collaboration are key to a successful future, and she has worked alongside individuals and groups who share this vision.

Emma’s experience has taught her the importance of listening to and learning from others, and she is committed to using her voice and platform to amplify the voices of those who may not have the opportunity to be heard. She is described by friends and colleagues as a fireball of passion, energy, and integrity. She will use this passion and dedication as a trustee of Cumbria Community Foundation to continuing working to supporting a better future for all.
