Ailsa Swarbrick, National Unit Director

Ailsa has led the FNP National Unit since 2012, during which time the Unit has moved from the Department of Health (DH) to a consortium led by the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, the Dartington Social Research Unit and Impetus-PEF. She joined the Unit in 2008, impressed by the powerful impact FNP can have on outcomes for vulnerable families. Before that she worked in civil service policy roles, focusing on children’s issues, addressing inequalities and policy implementation. Her early career was in the travel industry.
