Sian Southward

Head of Programmes


I joined OMS in January 2021 as the new Head of Programmes, focusing on the successful implementation of the new OMS business strategy across our four key strategic areas.

I graduated from the University of the West of England, Bristol with a BA Hons in Law. Since then, I have gained an extensive background in Operational Development, Change Management and Programme Management, working for the last 20yrs+ in both the not for profit and public sector including Age Concern, Hertfordshire Constabulary and 12 years at Guide Dogs.

I live in Hertfordshire with my husband, young son and our dog Dylan and in my spare time I enjoy running (slowly!) and spending quality time with the family, with a particular fondness of holidaying on the Gower coast in Wales.

I am thrilled to be joining at this exciting new chapter in the charity’s evolution, focusing on empowering people with MS to live a full life.
