Hayley Willingale

Hayley joined the Research and Consulting team in 2023 as a Programme Manager working on a major project for Sport England. Alongside consortium partners Ipsos and Sheffield Hallam’s Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre, Hayley leads NPC’s work as learning partner for a significant new initiative aimed at reducing inequalities in sport and physical activity.

Hayley has over 15 years’ experience working in the charity and public sectors, as well as a number of years engaging with the UN and other international fora, with a particular focus on equality, human rights and social justice. Prior to joining NPC, Hayley led a team of experts assessing the UK’s compliance with international human rights law across a wide range of issues. In this role she also managed a national programme that built the capacity of hundreds of civil society organisations to better utilise human rights law as a tool for change.

Hayley is passionate about wellbeing, diversity, equity and inclusion issues, and centring living experience at the heart of any meaningful change.
