Marc Walker

Marc first became interested in the voluntary sector in 2004 when, during his Bar Finals, he volunteered at the Mary Ward Legal Centre in London, providing free debt, welfare benefits and employment law advice and advocacy to low income clients.  Many years later, having moved out of London due (mainly) to an aversion to paying the congestion charge, he joined Citizens Advice in 2013 as a volunteer adviser. Since then he has served as a trustee for 4 years, latterly as vice chair and then chair of Newmarket CAB, prior to moving onto the merged board of West Suffolk.

His passion is defending the rights of others, which for many years meant representing vulnerable clients in criminal and employment law proceedings.  He currently runs his law firm specialising in defending beleaguered professionals, such as nurses, social workers and paramedics, in fitness to practice matters before the Nursing and Midwifery Council and the Health and Care Professions Council.

Most important to him is his family life as a husband, and father to two young sons, closely followed by his love for his team, 6 times European Champions, Liverpool FC.  He enjoys trips to France and Poland and speaks French passably well and Polish quite badly.
