Ali Barkley

Deputy Chief Executive Office

Hi I’m Ali Barkley, Deputy Chief Executive here at Intact. I’ve been working for Intact since 2001 now and have seen it grow from a small drop-in centre in Tanterton to the thriving community centre we see today. I am really proud of what the staff team, volunteers and trustees have accomplished over that time, and it is a pleasure to work for an organisation that makes sure a positive difference to people’s lives.

I have been married for almost 25 years, and have four grown up sons, one of which is still at home and we have a have a dog, ‘Rocky’. I also have a beautiful granddaughter who I look after one day a week and we go out and about to as many places as possible each week.

My passion (which is not shared with ‘the boys’) is scuba diving and the marine environment. I am a qualified Master Scuba Diver with over 200 logged dives, and I have been lucky enough to dive all around the world, (once with Hammerhead sharks) as well as being privileged to have snorkelled with Whale Sharks which was awesome!
