What I do

Amy is an Assistant Programme Manager at Y Lab.


Amy studied Product Design at Cardiff Metropolitan University and holds both a BA and MSc. After graduating, she decided the design world wasn’t for her and started her time with Nesta as an intern. Amy has worked on the Digital Innovation Fund for Wales and Innovate to Save since joining the team. As part of her role, Amy is exploring how Y Lab can expand their capacity building work as well as supporting the running of Innovate to Save.

In her free time you can normally find Amy on one of Wales’ many amazing beaches, baking at home or trying new things in an attempt to be one of those people with a hobby.

We share some tips from the Innovate to Save Generating Ideas workshop; designed to give participants some practical tools and advice to help shape project ideas, with a focus on the needs and involvement of the people that use their services.
