RESULTS welcome Lucy Drescher as the new Head of Parliamentary Advocacy

23 Apr 2015

Hi all, I am Lucy Drescher and I am the new Head of Parliamentary Advocacy at RESULTS UK. The parliamentary team is responsible for leading the RESULTS engagement with the UK parliament in both the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Members of the team are able to involve MPs and Peers in RESULTS events and campaigning work on TB, Child Health, Nutrition and Education. So, I am now in the process of finding out all about the work RESULTS  does in these areas!

For the last couple of years I have been working closely with other organisations working on disability and development, as part of the Bond Disability and Development group, to lobby the International Development Select Committee to do an inquiry into disability and development. Following the production of the report on the inquiry, the government responded and promised to produce a Disability Framework. I was part of the group that met with DFID to advise them on the development of this Framework. All of this enabled me to develop knowledge around disability and development which I hope to be able to contribute to the work of RESULTS UK. I am really pleased to have joined RESULTS UK  and look forward to meeting all the campaigners and parliamentarians who we work with. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at lucy.drescher@results.org.uk
