Alex Downing

Volunteering Services Officer – Marketing and Campaigns

Alex has worked in Marketing and Communications for over 30 years. She joined CAS during the Pandemic and has been working on the Community Restart Programme. She has also helped to manage Suffolk’s Covid Vaccination programme, which has given her a good understanding of the issues of social isolation and mental wellbeing particularly for older people and the clinically vulnerable.

As the Restart Project is drawing to a close, she has moved over to marketing and comms for the Volunteering Services team. Whilst the voluntary sector has been adversely affected in some ways by the Pandemic, there are, also, some positives, in that the vital importance of volunteering in our communities has been highlighted, as well as the benefits for volunteers. She will be promoting the amazing work of Volunteer Suffolk and building connections through social media and social marketing.
