Alison Crocket

” For 17 years Alison was a social worker, working mainly with people who use drugs in Scotland and in Liverpool, as well as with young people with challenging behaviors. She joined the FCO in 2001, going to Vienna in 2003 where she worked at the UK Mission to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, leading on drug policy, HIV prevention, Anti-Corruption and Transnational Organised Crime. In 2011 she became a senior policy adviser to UNAIDS on HIV prevention among most vulnerable communities, including people who inject drugs, prisoners and sex workers. She has worked with many countries to develop public health policies that were sensitive to the needs of these groups and encouraged community participation at every level of these plans. On return to the UK in 2015, she headed the Anti-Corruption team in the FCO and came to Bermuda in 2018 as Deputy Governor and remains committed to helping vulnerable communities in any way she can.”
