Silvana has given over 20 years of service in local government in the field of children and families and has been committed to making a positive impact on people’s lives. Silvana is currently responsible for developing essential structures, systems, and policies that enable effective service delivery.

Silvana firmly believes that when people are given a chance, they can thrive and create a better future for themselves and their loved ones, witnessing firsthand the transformative effects of such opportunities, as well as the challenges faced by those who are not given the support they need. Whether it’s advocating for better resources, implementing innovative programmes, or collaborating with community partners, Silvana is driven by the desire to make a lasting difference.

Having benefitted from the invaluable and non-judgmental support from Prisoners Abroad when a loved one was sent to prison abroad, Silvana looks forward to continuing a journey of service and advocacy as a trustee to support their vital work.
