Meet our Family Support team

Vicky Inglis
Head of Family Support Services 

Vicky leads our Family Support team and she truly understands the experience of parents. Her brave son, Jamie, passed away in January 2013 at the age of seven after battling neuroblastoma for half of his life. Jamie received treatment in the UK, Germany and USA at a time when there was no dedicated neuroblastoma Family Support Service established in the UK. 

Vicky left her primary school teaching career to work with Solving Kids' Cancer UK. Jamie's legacy shines on through Vicky's work with the charity. 

Vicky is always available to identify and address each family's needs, aiming for the best outcome each time.
