Born and raised in South London, Olivia is driven by the belief that everyone should be able to enjoy the vibrant cultural, social, and economic riches of the city she loves. As Chief Executive at the Vision Foundation, she is responsible for the strategic direction of the organisation, supporting the teams to raise significant funds and make significant noise, and ensuring that everything we do has the greatest possible impact for London’s partially sighted and blind people. Olivia was previously the Director of Fundraising at children’s mental health charity Place2Be and Head of Fundraising and Communications at autism research charity Autistica. She has volunteered widely in the sector internationally and at home, and is currently a Trustee of UK poverty charity Turn2us. Before joining the charitable sector Olivia was a researcher and lecturer in Evolutionary Biology.
