Meet the Team
CCiS consists of a small yet ambitious team, fuelled by a passion to help the people of Suffolk. They are supported by a team of determined and willing ambassadors and trustees.

Her role includes listening to those who have been affected by cancer and working with stakeholders throughout Suffolk, from hospitals to hairdressers, to design projects that meet their needs. A dab hand with an eyebrow pencil, Karen also runs our It's All About You Beauty Workshops.
