As SeeAbility’s Director of Partnerships and Social Impact, Desiree D’Souza leads SeeAbility’s fundraising, marketing and communications and engagement teams which together 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 as equal citizens.

Desiree is an experienced leader with a specialism in building long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships with organisations and individuals. Over 15 years, many of these have been transformational in delivering education, employment and a stronger voice for people with disabilities in the UK and around the world.  This has sparked a passion for championing inclusion in everything she does.

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.
