Vici Richardson

Chief Executive Officer

I am new to the post of CEO, taking over from Victoria Armstrong in September 2022.

I have worked within Disability North for 12 years. Over the years I have supported hundreds of disabled people and their families in the area of Direct Payments or Personal Health Budgets and providing community care advice. I have developed and managed our Independent Direct Payment Support Service.

Inclusion, choice and control is something that is extremely important to me not only as the Chief Executive of Disability North but also as a Mum to a young man who lives with a long term health condition. I have seen the difference in his life when he has good person centered support to live his life.

Something not many people know about me:

I auditioned for Xfactor .. twice !
