Ellie Orton OBE

Chief Executive, NHS Charities Together

Ellie Orton has been Chief Executive of NHS Charities Together since July 2018. She was instrumental in leading the charity’s award-winning Covid Urgent Appeal during 2020 and has since led a complete transformation within the charity. This was recognised by being awarded Charity Times Outstanding Individual Achievement Award in 2021; Association of Project Management Outstanding Organisational Award in 2021 and being named in HSJ top 100 CEOs in 2021 and Charity Times most pioneering CEOs.

Previously she was CEO at a Coventry based charity working with vulnerable and sexually exploited women, and interim CEO at the Jon Egging Trust, supporting young people with barriers in their lives to reach their full potential. Ellie is passionate about social change and the African philosophy of Ubuntu, which literally translates as ‘humanity’. She loves beaches, running, and her family, including the dog. She was proud to be awarded an OBE in June 2021 for services to the NHS.
