Director of Development

Buddug Williams, Development Officer Wales

As Director of Development at the charity, I work with the team to develop new projects, collaborations and activities. Our ambition is to be informing and influencing to achieve change for the better on the many different issues that matter to our members, individuals and their families who are affected by genetic conditions.

Prior to this role, I worked for Genetic Alliance UK as Development Officer in Wales. This gave me a good understanding on how we approach our work with our members in both policy and public affairs activities and also in information and engagement activities that raise understanding of different issues.

I am a Public and Patient Engagement member on NHS England's Clinical Reference Group for Medical Genetics, and am happy to discuss issues around medical genetics services, particularly with patients and patient groups.

My background is in Biological Science and in Communication.
