Alison Carey

Honorary Treasurer

Alison is a qualified accountant and tax adviser, specialising in VAT. After over 30 years working for a large accountancy firm she has now established her own practice with some former colleagues.  A Maths graduate from Cambridge, she has specialised in VAT for almost 25 years, having previously worked in a range of fields including, audit and corporate finance. 
She has always used her financial experience in the not for profit sector as treasurer of various sports clubs, of her National Childbirth Trust (“NCT”) branch and later as a trustee of the NCT for six years. 
Her husband is an academic working in materials science and her two sons are both studying physics at university – so she is well aware how male dominated the STEM world is. In her spare (?) time she enjoys travel, music festivals, keeping fit, tennis and walking. She lives in Manchester.
