Clare Budden

Group Chief Executive

Clare is the proud Chief Executive (and a board member) of ClwydAlyn, and has had a long career working for Housing Associations and Local Government, leading many service areas including Economic Growth, Regeneration, Housing Benefits and Council Tax, and Housing and Homelessness services.   

She is Chair of 2025 (a movement set up to tackle avoidable health inequalities in North Wales), and was recently one of the members of the Welsh Government Homeless Action group, which developed proposals for the Housing Minister, which have been accepted, on how to end Homelessness in Wales. She recently has been appointed Board Member of Betsi Cadwaladr and is also a member of the Transformation Advisory Board, which works with the CEO of the NHS in Wales on plans to deliver “A Healthier Wales”. Clare is a member of the Stakeholder reference group for the North Wales Health Board, and a board member of the North Wales and Mersey Dee Business Council.  

Clare is passionate about eradicating poverty and inequality, and gets angry that the place where you live or were born still has such an impact on life outcomes. Linked to its mission to work with others to end poverty, ClwydAlyn has set ambitious goals to end evictions from its properties, and achieved an 85% reduction in year 1.  

Clare is a proud Welsh woman, living close to where she grew up in North Wales. She feels lucky to have been able to live the life she has chosen, and wants to do what she can at work to make sure others can.
