Adrian Waddingham, Ambassador

Adrian Waddingham accepted SeeAbility’s invitation to become an Ambassador in June 2015 saying: “I am flattered to be asked to be an Ambassador for such a wonderful charity.” 

Like many supporters Adrian was alarmed to realise just how often eyesight testing is overlooked when working with disabled children – even though it is obviously the right place to start.

Adrian qualified as an actuary in 1975 and is a founder partner of Barnett Waddingham LLP, now the largest independent firm of actuaries in the UK.

A Past Master of the Worshipful Company of Actuaries, one of London’s 110 Livery Companies who collectively do so much for charitable causes, Adrian was awarded the CBE in 2012 for services to pensions and the actuarial profession.

In 2014 Adrian served as a Sheriff of the City of London and is a member of the Council of City & Guilds, a Director of the Epilepsy Society and the current President of the Association of Lancastrians in London.
