Hayley has worked at Beat for almost 3 years, previously the Regional Officer for the North West before becoming the Business Development Manager. Her role at Beat is to work with organisations across the UK, including the NHS, Schools, Universities and private sector organisations, to help identify any training and support needs to improve professional awareness of the signs and symptoms of eating disorders, increase intervention rates with the aim of reducing the number of people who wait until crisis point before seeking and accessing the treatment they need and empower families and carers so they are able to support their loved ones into, during and out of treatment to support a sustained recovery.
Before her time at Beat, Hayley graduated from the University of Lincoln in 2014, where she was then elected as Vice President Activities of the Students’ Union before becoming President the following year. Representing the students at Lincoln for two years, Hayley has first-hand experience of supporting students, witnessing the challenges they can be presented with when transitioning into higher education and has worked on a number of projects and campaigns to help students overcome any barriers they can often face during their time at University.
