Our People - Lucy Buck, Co-Founder and CEO
Updated: Aug 6
Why did you join Good Company?
I set up Good Company after my Mum Hazel was diagnosed with dementia and discovered how little there was out there. I had worked in Uganda for 10 years setting up a children's charity and wanted to use my skills and experience to make a difference to older adults in the UK
What does Good Company mean to you?
Fun, laughter, safe space, having each others back and friendship
What is your professional background?
In my 20's I worked in TV and produced reality shows including Big Brother, Hells Kitchen and Love Island. In my 30's I set up Child's i Foundation - a children's charity in Uganda to support children in families, not orphanages and in my 40's it's co-founding The Good Company People.
What are your hobbies and interests?
I love spending time with my family and friends and singing badly.
How would your friends describe you?
Loyal, kind and slightly mad
Can you share something interesting that not many people know about you?
