About Emma Williamson, Community Impact Manager
Emma joined BEC in early 2023 having previously worked for Copeland Borough Council. Emma has a deep understanding of the challenges faced by our communities in West Cumbria and is passionate about making a difference for the people that live here.

My passion is people, I love meeting new people, learning from them and feeling inspired by their experiences. I work collaboratively by sharing knowledge and experiences to create lasting change in our communities. My friends and colleagues would describe me as a fireball of passion, energy and integrity. My experiences have shaped me to help others, especially those in need of a voice. Everything I do is to ensure everyone has an equal access to opportunities and I pride myself in supporting others to thrive. I believe connections and collaboration are the key to a successful future.
