We are delighted to share the news that our former Chief Executive, Becky Hewitt, has been awarded an OBE as part of the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

Becky has received the award in recognition for services to people with visible differences.

Our Chair, David Clayton, says: “On behalf of the Changing Faces team, I’d like to express how very proud we are of Becky and congratulate her on receiving an OBE as part of the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

“Becky achieved a huge amount during her time with Changing Faces, key to this was ensuring that the voices and experiences of those who have a visible difference were at the heart of decision making. This is a very well-deserved award and a fantastic way to mark her time as Chief Executive.”
