Collective Voice is led by Paul Hayes, working alongside a range of organisations and affiliated professionals. Paul has a 30 year track record of engaging central and local government, the criminal justice system, the NHS, and the third sector to deliver excellent outcomes for service users and communities at national and local level. He was CEO of the National Treatment Agency for Substance Use from 2001 to 2013.
Paul is supported by Juline Mauger and Alison Hill. Juline has worked for thirty years in the public and third sectors, focusing mainly on services for vulnerable and marginalised people, and leads on policy for Collective Voice. Alison has worked in policy and communications in the third sector for the last two years, and is currently working at Adfam which provides secretariat support for Collective Voice. She leads on communications for Collective Voice.
Collective Voice is sponsored and overseen by a group of third sector substance misuse service providers including Blenheim, Change, grow, live, Changing Lives, Cranstoun, DISC, Phoenix Futures and Turning Point.
The intention is that structures developed by Collective Voice will over time draw in a wide range of third sector and NHS providers, and create alliances across other relevant sectors including mental health, criminal justice, and housing to identify issues of shared concern.
Collective Voice is overseen by a Board made up of the Chief Executives of the funding organisations.
