Alison’s working life has spanned public, private and voluntary sectors, employed and self employed. She spent twenty years in management with national and international companies, before joining the environmental sector in 1996. She has since held senior roles in several major environmental organisations within Wales and joined R4C in 2009 bringing with her a strong belief in the power of community action.
Her practical experience of voluntary activity in inner city and rural areas combined with a strong background in business development, marketing and project management gives her the knowledge and experience to add insight and value to a wide variety of projects; from community based enterprise to national strategic programmes.
In the past Alison has taken a leading role on a number of Steering Groups; she helped set up the first environmental records centre in Wales and acted as project leader of the Wales Voluntary and Statutory Environmental Compact. She is a founding Director and Vice Chairman of the Brecon Beacons Trust, which distributes funds to the voluntary sector for environmental work within Brecon Beacons National Park. She is also a member of Sustain Wales, Wales Funders Forum, the Institute of Welsh Affairs and the Institute of Leadership and Management.
