As SeeAbility’s Executive Director of Innovation and Social Impact, Desiree D’Souza leads SeeAbility’s fundraising and volunteering, marcomms, employment, digital skills and engagement teams. Together these seek to deepen the impact of the charity’s work so that many more people with learning disabilities, autism and sight loss have the opportunity to participate and contribute as equal citizens. Desiree is an experienced leader with a specialism in building long-term, partnerships including with leading corporates. Over her career, many of these have delivered transformational education, employment and advocacy opportunities for people with disabilities in the UK and internationally. Outside of work, and since recently moving out of London, Desiree enjoys exploring the Sussex countryside (and getting to grips with country life!) with her young daughter and husband.
