Colette joined the charity in 2013 as Director of Operations, supporting our Volunteering, Services and Local teams. Her career started as a research scientist and then focused on bringing innovations to market, which led to her heading up an international business in the chemical industry. In her spare time, she volunteered and donated to charities, and this led to her making the move into the charity sector.  

As Director UK Programmes at Save the Children, she led the team tackling the blight of severe and persistent poverty. At MEND UK, she led work with families and communities living with overweight.  

Colette leads Diabetes UK with a passion for tackling the stigma and inequalities that come with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, working towards a cure and our goal of ending the harm of diabetes.   

Colette is a Trustee at the Bat Conservation Trust. She was formerly Co-Chair of the End Child Poverty Coalition, sat on the Child Poverty Advisory Group to the Minister of Employment, was a mentor for the Prince’s Trust, and was Chair of the Merseyside Dance Initiative. Qualified with a degree in Chemistry, Colette also holds an Executive MBA from London Business School.
