Claire Eldred

Interim Director

I joined the DSUK team in March 2020 as Head of Marketing and Communications. I've been working in healthcare communications for more than 15 years, and was thrilled to join DSUK at such an exciting time, when the charity is growing fast and there are many exciting developments taking place in the understanding and treatment of Dravet Syndrome.

In July 2021, I took on the role of Interim Director, while we recruit for a permanent appointee to this role. 

The Director's role at DSUK is to deliver the our 5-year strategy, as set by the Board of Trustees. The strategy sets out the different ways in which DSUK plans to address the challenges that continue to face families and individuals living with Dravet Syndrome in the UK. 

It's a privilege to be part of the Dravet Syndrome community and I am inspired every day by the amazing children and adults living with this condition and their families.
