Vidhu is passionate about addressing social inequalities and was attracted to Saxton Bampfylde because she believes excellent, progressive leaders are critical for a fairer society. She served on the board of Teach First and is a trustee for Hopscotch, a charity that offers services to women who are under the influence of inequalities and abuse.

Vidhu studied Law at Bristol University, before completing her MSc in International Development from the University of Bath.
