The British Dyslexia Association has welcomed Nick Posford as its new chief executive. 

Posford joins from the same role at CICRA, a charity for children with inflammatory bowel disease, where he has been since 2017. 

At CICRA he worked to develop a family support service, create a programme aimed at increasing confidence in children with bowel disease, and to drive improvements in care across the UK.

He was previously chief executive of the Union of Kingston Students at Kingston University, and before that was head of fundraising at Cardiomyopathy UK.

In a statement announcing his move, Posford said: “I have seen the impact on individuals and those who support them when schools or workplaces are not dyslexia-friendly.

“I am keen to help drive improvements across our society to benefit people with dyslexia. It is more important than ever that schools, colleges, universities, employers and businesses are dyslexia-welcoming, to draw on the widest range of talent and abilities.”
