About Nesta

Nesta is an innovation foundation. For us, innovation means turning bold ideas into reality and changing lives for the better. We use our expertise, skills and funding in areas where there are big challenges facing society.

Alison joins us as interim senior manager for the Behavioural Insights Team.

Alison has over 15 years of communications experience and expertise - working with national charities, think tanks, social ventures and local community groups.

Most recently she was Group Head of Communications for Recovery Focus - a group of charities delivering services for people living with mental ill health, domestic abuse, drug and alcohol use.

Alison lives a pleasingly short pedal away from our London office. She has recently returned from a sabbatical/mid-life mini-gap year interrailing around Europe and is a devotee of the European Train Timetable.
