Andy Watmough

Andy Watmough joined us as Chief Executive Officer in January 2021. Having spent 25 years working with Community Voluntary Organisations in the North East, he has gained experience across a range of sectors including: mental health & wellbeing; advice & guidance; children, young people & families; employment & skills; community engagement and volunteering!

He is passionate about overcoming inequality and committed to working with partners to simplify and join-up client pathways, aiming to make sure that services are as accessible as possible – with ‘no wrong door’ for people who need support. 

When Andy is not working, he enjoys spending time with his family on campervan adventures… trying to escape to places where there is no mobile signal, standing at the bottom of rockfaces and boulders (often in Northumberland) and trying to climb up them!
