Our Team

We are pleased to introduce our team.

Val Huxley – CEO

After a life changing visit to Romania in 2004 Val left her family and friends back in Kent to support the then fledgling charity. Few would argue that since joining the charity she has been the main stay whilst going through many changes over the years, serving selflessly. Respected by project leaders and loved by hundreds of the children and families within our projects, Val is fired for the charity’s objectives in helping to relieve communities from poverty.   She attends the West Wilts Vineyard Church, Trowbridge.


Alistair Steadman – Finance Manager

Alistair first joined the charity as a volunteer in 2018.  In January 2019 a vacancy became free and Alistair became a member of the team as Finance Manager.  Alistair is married with 2  children.  He has worked in Sales for many years but when the opportunity arose for him to work within the Third Sector, he jumped at the offer of joining the small team at People against Poverty.

Alistair and his family currently worship at St Mary’s Church, Broughton Gifford.


Jill Neighbour –  Office Administrator

Jill is married and has four children and four grandchildren.  
She studied Education at Oxford Brooks University and has a background in special educational needs; however, the majority of Jill’s working life has been within the charity sector, working with adults and young people who have been exploited or marginalised in some way.
Jill attends West Wilts Vineyard Church, Trowbridge
