Jessica has volunteered for charities since she was a teenager. Largely providing personal care to hospital pilgrims in Lourdes; but also organising an international holiday camp bringing 300 young people together - people with disabilities and volunteer carers. The common theme of these is putting the person centre stage with a programme of activities that inspire enjoyment, growth and confidence. Values that she is delighted to find at the heart of Orpheus.

Jessica also comes to Orpheus with over 20 years experience as a professional charity fundraiser. She has run major capital appeals, and shaped fundraising strategies to deliver good practice and growth. She is currently the Head of Strategic Partnerships at Versus Arthritis. 

Jessica lives in the Test Valley with her young yellow Labrador - Tinka. She enjoys gardening and sings with the Barton Stacey Chamber Choir.  

Jessica Dallyn joined the board of trustees in 2023, and is currently the Fundraising Trustee.
