From 1994 to 1997, she worked for Christian Aid first as a campaign assistant in London, working in Serbia during the war and as Head of Country Office in Bosnia following years of conflict. She led World Action for the Methodist youth organization, playing a key role in campaigns on bullying, Burma, and International Debt cancellation. She worked on several successful campaigns on nutrition and water, and then joined Wateraid as Head of Global Campaigns.
Anderson got involved in politics because of the closure of children’s centres and local institutions. She was elected to represent Bedford Ward on Wandsworth London Borough Council in 2014 and re-elected in 2018.

She campaigned against various issues that the city encountered like children’s centers being closed, against proposed cuts on healthcare services for people with autism.
