Georgia Parry

Georgia's role is to support and coordinate the consortium in setting up the WWCCSC. Coordinate the team activities around mobilisation, set up and early life activities of the What Works Centre for Children's Social Care.

Prior to Nesta, Georgia worked at a start up charity, Children Heard and Seen, supporting children who have a parent in prison. Children Heard and Seen provides direct interventions to mitigate these outcomes. Georgia worked with the charity for three years, and with the founder supported it to grow from inception to benefiting over 400 children. Georgia is now a trustee of the charity and continues to support it's growth and development to ensure more children are supported.


Georgia has enjoyed many years of competitive rowing throughout school and university and now enjoys open water swimming, especially in the summer!
