Polly Meeks

ADD International

Polly is Deputy Director of Policy and Influencing at ADD International, a disability rights organisation supporting disability activists in Africa and Asia to bring social change.

Prior to joining ADD International, Polly worked for seven years at the National Audit Office, where she qualified as an accountant, before moving into wider scrutiny work, focusing on official statistics, social protection, and international aid. In 2013-14 she was seconded to the House of Commons International Development Committee, where she managed the inquiry on Disability and Development. 


The Sustainable Development Goals pledge to leave no-one behind, but the focus on value for money is growing. The apparent conflict between these two objectives is no where more apparent than in the area of disability and inclusivity.
