Unicef UK Appoints Lily Caprani as Deputy Executive Director
Unicef UK has appointed Lily Caprani as its new Deputy Executive Director, Communications, Advocacy and Programmes.
Lily, who takes up the post in June, will play a key role in leading the organisation as part of the Executive Team. She will have direct responsibility for ambitious advocacy, communication and programme strategies to strengthen Unicef UK’s work for the world’s children. Unicef UK raises funds to protect children in danger, transform their lives and build a safer world for tomorrow’s children.
Lily joins Unicef UK from The Children’s Society, one of the UK’s leading children’s charities, which she joined in 2011 as Director of Campaigns and Media ahead of being promoted to the Senior Leadership Team as Director of Strategy and Policy. Before this, Lily was Head of Communications for the leading mental health charity, Rethink Mental Illness, and played a key role in launching Time to Change - England's most ambitious ever social marketing campaign designed to combat the stigma of mental health problems.
Lily says: “I am deeply honoured to have the opportunity to join the fantastic team at Unicef UK, and to become part of an international organisation that has done more than any other in the world to further children's rights. But it is also with great sadness that I am moving on from The Children’s Society, where I have had the privilege of working with talented and dedicated colleagues to improve the lives of disadvantaged children in this country."
David Bull, Unicef UK Executive Director, says: “We are delighted to welcome Lily Caprani to Unicef UK. Lily brings an exciting wealth of experience in leadership, campaigning and communications that will greatly enhance our work to protect children in danger around the world. We are really looking forward to working with her. ”
Matthew Reed, Chief Executive of The Children’s Society says: “Lily has made a substantial contribution to The Children's Society's mission over the past few years. We are most grateful for her leadership of The Children’s Society’s communications, campaigns and policy work and wish Lily all the very best for her new role at Unicef UK.”
