Catherine's work focused on People Powered Results - a partnership approach to complex service transformation in health and care settings.
She was also actively involved in the Centre for Social Action Innovation Fund, managing a portfolio of grants and working with volunteers in innovative ways to improve outcomes for older people and those with long-term health conditions.
Prior to Nesta, Catherine spent three and a half years at the Young Foundation as an associate in the applied innovation team.
Here she worked to support the development and growth of innovation across local authorities, housing associations and charities. This included coaching on innovation skills for 30 local authorities to build local solutions for ageing populations, supporting a national housing association through a design-led approach to developing a new service for isolated older people, and using ethnographic research methods to influence policy around the impact of the welfare reform.
Previously, Catherine has spent time volunteering with VSO working in community development in North-East Mongolia and the Lake District.
Catherine is a geography graduate from the University of Sheffield.
