Social Entrepreneur, Allison Ogden-Newton, 

To Lead Keep Britain Tidy


Keep Britain Tidy has announce that Allison Ogden-Newton, an 
experienced charity professional, social entrepreneur and founder
 of social value think-tank The Transition Institute, is joining the 
charity in August as its new chief executive.
Allison will join Keep Britain Tidy (KBT) from World Child Cancer, and
she replaces Phil Barton, who left the organisation in March this year.
KBT’s chair, Dinah Nichols, said: “We are delighted  to welcome Allison
as our new Chief Executive. Our organisation has transformed itself from
a grant-funded body into a completely independent campaigning charity, 
and Allison’s wealth of experience in leading social enterprises will be 
invaluable as we grow the business and strengthen our partnerships and 
supporter base.
“The issues that Keep Britain Tidy champions – litter, the quality of our
public spaces and waste – affect the quality of life of every single citizen 
and the need for an independent, campaigning voice for a cleaner greener 
country has never been greater.
“I am also enormously grateful to our Operations Director. Richard McIlwain
for stepping up as Interim Chief Executive in the intervening period.”
Allison is a successful campaigner speaking out on the issues of equal
opportunities, health and the social economy as CEO of WEB Group Ltd, 
Social Enterprise London and World Child Cancer. She founded of 
The Transition Institute and chaired it from 2012-2014.
On the role, Allison said: “The job of Keeping Britain Tidy has never
been more important. On the one hand, more people than ever value
the environment while others increasingly abuse the communities they 
live in with unsightly and hazardous litter. Keep Britain Tidy is a widely 
recognised institution that stands for caring,
 environmentally aware communities and I am delighted to have this
opportunity to pursue my passion for creating a better environment for 
future generations by joining the team.
“There is no doubt that issues on which Keep Britain Tidy tirelessly
campaigns are resonating with communities, businesses and individuals. 
We can see this in the recent focus both of the national media and Parliament; 
public opinion is turning against the mindset that thinks that littering is 
“I look forward to working with both the new Government and the
businesses that want to tackle the problems we face as we look to develop 
new approaches to change behaviour and create the difference we all 
want to see – a country of which we can all be proud.”
