Beverley Williams joins Addaction as Executive Director of Operations

Beverley joins Addaction from Home Group, one of the UK’s largest housing associations, where she was Director of Partnerships. Between 2010 and 2016 she led client facing transformation programmes as well as overseeing the quality delivery of accommodation and support services.

Beverley said: “I’m hugely excited to take on this responsibility. Addaction’s strategy and values align with my passion for social justice and my experience in leading services that make a real difference to people’s lives. My initial focus will be meeting clients, colleagues and commissioners to hear from them about how we can build on our successes and reach more people in the years ahead.”

Beverley will lead a nationwide network of 81 mental health, alcohol, and drug services. Last year we helped more than 130,000 young people and adults in England and Scotland.

Mike Dixon, CEO of Addaction said: “Beverley brings the perfect combination of energy, passion and expertise. She has 20 years experience delivering social care, health, criminal justice and children’s services. On behalf of the Executive team I’m delighted to welcome her on board and look forward to working with her in the years ahead.”
