"I joined ACEVO when I was chief executive of Leeds University Union. I wanted my next job to be in the mainstream third sector but without ACEVO I think I would have struggled. Seven years on ACEVO is still important to me – I value the networks it provides, the learning it enables and the support it gives."

Lesley Dixon, chief executive,  Person Shaped Support (PSS), member since 2010
