Alex Meyrick

Veterans Community Worker London

Alex began working for the NHS in Pharmacy in 2011, moving between community pharmacy and hospital pharmacy over the past 10 years. Working in a hospital throughout the Pandemic, Alex supported pharmacy within NHS to continue services and ensure the best care for patients throughout lockdowns and the ever-changing landscape of healthcare in a global emergency.

Alex moved from Dorset to London in 2014 to train as an actor at Italia Conti, and after a Foundation Course and a Degree Course, graduated 4 years later. Her career highlights include representing Italia Conti at the Sam Wanamaker Festival at Shakespeare’s Globe, winning the runner-up prize for the Carlton Hobbes BBC Radio Drama Award, receiving the Laurence Olivier bursary from the Society of London Theatre and along with a fantastic cast, taking an award-winning production of The Laramie Project to Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017.

She is a proud member of the military family; her grandfather served in the RAF in the 1950s, and her partner of 7 years, Leah, has been serving in the Army since February 2021. She is ever keen to be as involved as possible in the military family to which she belongs! Alex is passionate about LGBT+ history and supporting older members of our community, with an emphasis on hearing and understanding lived experiences. She wants to highlight the stories of those who fought so bravely for the rights we now enjoy and support those who can guide us through the next stage of the fight for all members of the LGBT+ community to live freely and equally in society.

Alex spends her time attending LGBT+ events across London, writing what could tentatively be referred to as Stand-Up Comedy and getting used to living back in the countryside with her partner in Wiltshire. She is overwhelmingly proud to now be a part of Fighting With Pride and to get out there and help our Veterans.
