Epilepsy Society has appointed Sarah Vibert as its new Head of Development and Policy. The new post has been created to lead the charity’s development agenda and to coordinate its contribution to national and local policy development.
Epilepsy Society’s chief executive Graham Faulkner said: “Sarah will be working with me to respond to opportunities for growth and diversity presented by the Health and Social Care Act.”
Sarah, who has a background in policy, development and project management, joins Epilepsy Society from In Kind Direct, a charity founded by the Prince of Wales in 1996 that distributes surplus goods from manufacturers and retailers to UK charities. She was the charity’s Head of Charity Partnerships.
She was also Head of Development at the Prince’s Charities and worked on strategic projects and policy, including the London Health Inequalities Strategy in the Mayor’s Office.
Sarah said: “It’s a very exciting time to be working for Epilepsy Society. My role will involve identifying opportunities for the development of new business streams and activities for the charity, as well as monitoring the public policy environment in which we operate. I am delighted to be part of Epilepsy Society, a charity that, having grown up with a brother with epilepsy, I personally connect with and have empathy for.”
Epilepsy Society’s chief executive, Graham Faulkner said: “Having recently been awarded a major grant under the Department of Health's Innovation, Excellence and Strategic Development Fund 2012-13, Epilepsy Society is moving into an era of growth and development and we are delighted to have someone as dynamic and forward thinking as Sarah on board to lead our development agenda.”
