With a vast amount of experience, Alison also leads work resolving digital presences, teams and projects that are experiencing some issues and need some focus to resolve.
Alison was the Head of Digital at Age UK throughout and led the digital part of what was heralded as the ‘biggest charity merger of the decade’ – leading two organisations, 175 partners and 300 sites to become one user-centric digital platform and firmly embedding digital as the very centre of the organisation.
