Diane French


Diane started her career working in homelessness and mental health. She held a variety of local policy and commissioning roles based in Public Health before moving to national roles – she worked with the National Treatment Agency, the (then) Healthcare Commission and the National Audit Office and got further involved in the NHS through NED roles with primary care and clinical commissioning groups including leading on patient involvement portfolios.

Diane has held Director roles in national Mental Health and Learning Disability charities running large operational teams within care homes, supported housing and community support services. Diane joined Reside (Supported) Housing Association in January 2018 as CEO. She holds Masters degrees in Social Policy and in Executive Management. Diane has always been passionate about giving a voice to vulnerable and marginalised individuals and communities, and joining Picker will be an advocate for integrated health and social care and a focus on pathways of care.
