Demelza provides care and support for life-limited and life-threatened children and young people across Kent, South-East London, and East Sussex. This is through clinical care provided at two residential hospices and a community service, and a range of family support services.
Prior to working for Demelza, Ryan was Chief Executive of a large organisation delivering substance misuse treatment and mental health services. He took this organisation into a merger which is by far the largest in the substance misuse sector to date.
Ryan is currently Chair of Mind, the leading national mental health charity.
