I am a freelance consultant with a background that spans government, think tanks and civil society. I am passionate about collaborating with others to achieve social change, and do this through advising on strategy, delivering specific pieces of work, and building the capacity of teams and leaders. The main areas I work on are:
Engagement: I work with public sector organisations and charities to help develop creative strategies for public engagement, build their skills to engage citizens and residents, and work as a learning and evaluation consultant on a range of public engagement programmes.
Research and insight: I help clients design and deliver research programmes, with a particular focus on participative research methods. I also deliver specific research, learning and evaluation projects for clients, including process and outcome evaluations.
Policy and advocacy: I advise on policy development and advocacy strategies across a range of social policy issues. I also deliver training and capacity building to civil society organisations on their advocacy and influencing strategies.
